Tempo Run in Wicked Wind!

1st 3km @ ST pace.
Horrible conditions on Bowral cycle path this morning!  Unbelievably windy everywhere but especially going down the grassy hill where it felt like trying to go down on an escalator that's going up!

1.5km warm-up
3km @ ST pace VP 8:10m/k)
1.5k easy
3km @ ST pace
1.5km easy .... skipped this!

First 3km OK and ahead of VP.  
AHR 112-121 bpm =  82-89% of max.
TE 3.1 Improving!

Second 3km not so good!  Garmin battery went flat at 2.2km but I knew it would be 3km once I got back to the top of the hill at Briars.  VP was in front .... just!
AHR 117-134bpm = 86-99% of max.
TE 2.9  Maintaining 

No cool-down!  Too darned cold and windy!


  1. same here in Canberra - I just tell myself it's worth double if you complete the session!
