Who would have thought today would turn out to be such a beautiful day after the awful weather of the past 3 days! I was dreading having to do a long run had the rain, wind & cold persisted, but instead there was sun, some cloud, no wind, no rain & it wasn't even cold!
Program : Long Run......2 hours 15 minutes.
First hour very easy at average HR of 106bpm.
For the second 1 hour 15 minutes, gradually increase HR (and speed) to 130bpm.
Run as long as possible between 120 -130.
Try to do 30 minutes at average HR of 125.
Ease back down to 106 pace.
Results : Did all of the above & sent Motion Based report to Ewen!
I think this was a good run : first hour very easy, turning back at the top of the hill above Glenquarry.. Then 35 minutes between 120 - 130. Maybe I should have run longer at the increased HR...I could have, but I was already back to the car & had to fill in time going up & down the road to get to 2 hours 13 minutes & then called it a day! It was interesting having something to do while running : keeping a close eye on heart rate & adjusting pace to the ups & downs of Range Road.
