Track on the Treadmill....

Program : 2km warm-up.
Stretches, drills, strides.
3km with heart rate between 130 -140.....ease off at 138.
2km warm-down.

As usual on the treadmill, it takes more than 1km for me to get to this heart rate & by the time I do, the 3kms is just about up! After the warm-up & break for drills etc. I have to restart the engine slowly at 10kph & gradually speed up to 12kph which I find almost impossible to stay at for fear of flying off the treadmill! All this being the case, I probably run only the last 500m with heart rate between 130 and 140! I must ask Ewen about the logic of this.

Rest tomorrow & then a huge one on Sunday 32km...Good God, I'll be gone all day!


  1. If you get lost on the all-day run tomorrow I'll send out Horrie and Belinda to find you.

    By the way, don't you mean 'ease off'?

  2. Best of luck on your long run tomorrow LL. Please dont take all day - then who will blog your story??

  4. I made another typo error! I hope I removed it before Ewen saw it!

    What I said was : Yes" to Ewen!

    To Clairie I said: "If I'm gone all day or (I typed "ot" before!) get lost, Ewen will be sure to write something for me....without typo errors!
