same route as I did on New Year's Eve - downhill, level, climbing, undulating downhill, levelish, killer hill (You'd love it Leon!)
So the numbers:
|5||137||11:29||13:24||149||must have lost signal here I think!|
|8||139||13:52||13:54||138||this is uphill|
|9||136||14:56||15:02||137||killer hill warm down|
so pretty pleased with this!
What does it mean for BM?
Last night I commented on Pix's blog that I was hoping to run at 13:45 or (optimistically) 13:30 pace at BM which is in 2 weeks time and flat as a pancake.
Today I ran the first 8 miles in 1:46:59 which is equivalent to 13:22 pace - including some serious gradients. So maybe I should hope for a quicker pace than I had suggested at BM.
As I was plodding round today, I did think that I might run BM to my HRM - without the bleeps of course. I tend to get into a groove of plodding, which sometimes slows down, but if my HR says I could be going quicker then I try to speed up a bit. And it is a training run for FLM anyway!
