That's what it's called in Pete Magill's book!
40 - 70 minutes + One of several choices of Post-run Routines. I did what's called 'Dynamic Stretching' and it wasn't that easy either! I hope to improve!
What puzzles me is how slow the pace range is for today's session, based on my 35min 5km time..... 9:33-10:56m/k! Seems awfully slow and when I tried to set VP on my Garmin 620 to this range, I was unable to set anything slower than 8:55m/k and after that it returns to zero! I don't think I'm doing anything wrong with the Garmin; maybe it thinks anyone wanting a pace slower than 8:55 should be home dribbling into their porridge! So, 8:55m/k is where I set it. I started at the Highlands School in light rain but later became sunny, and then out and back on Diamond Fields Road to the school. A tough, hilly course at any pace!
Avg. pace 8:36m/k
AHR 71%; MHR 96%
Avg. Cadence 162 spm.
TE 3.5 = IMPROVING!
A bit concerned when I looked at tomorrow's session called "DISTANCE RUN". Even though today's was called "Easy Distance Run" I've never, that I can recall, backed up for 2 consecutive days, usually having a day off between sessions. Perhaps that's why the pace for today's 'easy' run was supposed to be so slow, but I wasn't able to set it on my Garmin. I also made an error, I think, in running for more than the max. 70 minutes, even though it was only 5 minutes extra instead of leaning towards the lower time of 40 minutes or something in between. Just my thoughts, on looking at tomorrow's session and then looking back on what I did today. If it's a mistake, I'll know tomorrow and learn from it!
