What a godsend the weather this week. It was cool, probably 17 degrees, today with a nice breeze.
Today's long run was done in 1:45, starting off with 5:25ish kilometres (8:50 miles) and ending with 5:10s (8:10 miles). I took out my heart rate monitor, which went beserk the first few kilometres, but settled down to the around 79%. I think either it's a bit too high but the average shows at 154 bpm / 82%. A bit on the high end for long runs. Total for the run was 1:45:57 with average pace of 5:17 kilometres or 8:30 miles.
Here's next week's schedule
Tuesday: 8 miles GA + 10X100
Thursday: 10 miles GA
Saturday: 5 miles recovery
Sunday: 13 miles medium long run.
I have to find a suitable cross training activity. I think i'll have to dig out the bike for Wednesday.
