Thermometer said 0C, the cars were very frosted and a freezing wind was blowing from Killamarsh. Wrapped up for a 7 mile run, intending to take it steady and tiptoe over and around the frozen puddles. The nearside of RV was chill, with the wind in my face; the far side was sheltered and better. I noticed my pace was good and thought I’d press on and get out of the cold quicker.
For yesterday’s sub-64 minute run I was doing around 5:30 min/km. Today my splits were around 5:20 min/km so I thought it would be a decent time. Ended up beating my previous best for this route (run #434 1:02:07) and knocked well over 2 minutes off yesterday’s time
Felt my right leg niggle before, during and after the run.
Avg HR: 147bpm
Avg pace: 5:23 min/km
