Morning Run - Up and down

avatar

I just finished a 6.841km running that lasted about 0hh:39mm:19ss !

Today was cool and a bit damp. I was not sure I needed long sleeves, but I did go for gloves. It did not really rain, but I felt some moisture on me as I started.

A lady was running past as I left the gate and I followed her up to West Drive without really catching up. She did not turn off. Then I started the first of two climbs up to Fairfield. It is about 1km rising 18m. From Strava I can see the difference in climbing and descending with my GAP (grade adjusted pace) being quicker as I went up. It is not a massive hill, but it makes the run a bit harder. On the second climb there was another lady ahead of me, but I did not catch her either. It is not a race anyway.

The last bit of that second climb was hard work, but then it was a cruise back down and the flat road to home. I decided to do another little climb at the end around our block. Most events I do have some up and down, so I should really get my legs used to that.

I was well warmed up when I got home and did not get wet in the end. Usual breakfast and shower before getting on with work, which is all from home these days.

Run free and stay well.

Nice job on your run! I was super cold outside today. The wind was coming pretty hard from the North so it made things quite chilly. Luckily I am still in workout inside mode, so it didn't really impact me. I did come to a realization today though. In the past when I did my workouts that include a HIIT section I would feel a bit of a rush at the end of the short running pieces. I haven't felt that in a while but today I caught it right at the end of my 2 minute run interval. I wonder if that means I am getting better at "running" or I lost the gains I had made before.

I hope it's a good sign for you.

I am reading a book about running and the guy mentioned hills, so that is what inspired today's run. I seem to have recovered well from the long one on Sunday.

I hope it is as well. I don't know much about runner's high and whether the more consistently you run the longer or shorter it takes you to reach it.

Sometimes I get to a state where the running does not feel too much of an effort and that can be nice. Not sure if it counts as a 'high'.

This was kind of like a wave washing over me. Like I said, I have felt it in the past after coming off a interval, but this was the first time in a while.
