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…
