Day: August 6, 2009
Wednesday 5 August, 7.01am.
Cloudy and trying to rain little, but a brightening morning.
Ran 9k (4k + 5k laps) and ran according to how I felt, just ‘braking’ or easing off when the watch beeped. This is different to my usual watching and adjusting to try to keep HR low all round. Was surprised that the HR graph was a lot more jagged compared to a smoother profile when constantly watching and easing off.
Avg HR 144bpm; peak HR 159bpm. It was only a spike, probably liked with an incline and blowing my nose! – nothing to be concered about.
Was nice running in spots of rain/drizzle for first lap, and felt fine at the finish. Blisters not as bad now, just minor irritation to right instep. Think the new socks are helping rather than making things worse.
