training run #117

Posted on Updated on

Tuesday 19 January, 5:31am.

Yes, 5:31!  Needed to run early so I could get to Leeds for a meeting.  Cool, 6C, but no wind or rain.  Ideal conditions.  Did a 4.9km loop to Sainsburys and Waterthorpe, followed by a 8km loop to college, old Westfield and back via Meadowgate.  Aimed for a steady HR-controlled run.

Loop 1 (4.9km):  33:19  avg HR: 140bpm
Loop 2 (8km):  53:19  avg HR: 137bpm
Total distance:  12.9km
Total time:  1:26:38
Avg HR:  138bpm
Avg pace (Nokia):  6:46 min/km

Good HR for me.  Got into a good rhythm for large parts of the run.  And I got to Leeds in time…
