Afternoon Run - Long intervals

in EXHAUSTlast year

I just finished a 6.681km running that lasted about 0hh:38mm:22ss !


It is really warming up this week when we had frost a few days ago. It seems like we have been swinging between hot and cold for months, but maybe summer is on the way. I needed to get a run in, so headed out after work.

I was doing my six minute intervals again. I am managing to average around five minutes per kilometre on these now, which is an improvement over the last few month. I hope I can get to sustaining that pace for longer. It feels possible.

The graph shows pace (blue) and heart rate (red).

I did not see many runners out this evening. It is probably better to run in the morning or later in the evening really when it is cooler. I wanted to do it before dinner, which was hot dogs tonight with various salad. As I checked out the garden I was offered a doughnut by our neighbour who works in a supermarket. She gets things like that cheap as they sell off the excess stock each day.

Our swimming pool is full now, but I will save my first swim for tomorrow. It may have warmed up a little by then.

Run fast and stay well!

Nice job! We were able to get out and do a bit of a walk too. We had to pick some interesting routes to steer clear of the standing water, but it wasn't too bad! I am looking forward to this weekend when the weather is supposed to be much sunnier and warmer!

It looked bad from your post pictures. Need your wellies :) Take care.

Nothing can stop a consistent Runner.
