Some lovely Autumn colours where I ran today.
....and no mistakes in the session, I hope!
Which was: 10 minutes (I did 2km) slow jog warm-up. Stretches.
5km on flat road @ 85%+ of Max. HR...a bit harder than Day 1, but not race pace.
Brisk walk 3km back to soccer field for stretches...lying in the sun on the warm grass watching the clouds roll by...should do this more often.....lie in the sun watching the clouds that is!
The road wasn't flat; had a couple of inclines - 1 of which was long (hardly see it except when running!) & the other short - I found the 5km (3km out & 2km return) fairly hard, especially the last 2km into a strong headwind; pleased to finish at 5km & not have another 5 to do!!
5km Time = 33.00.5
1km Splists = 6:00.0; 6:47.2; 6:21.6; 6:39.2; 7:12.5
Avg. HR = 85%
Max. HR = 90-95%
....and tomorrow is another day for Chickybabe!
