training run #135

Posted on Updated on

Saturday 20 February, 08:59.

Tried out the 25km Clowne loop Jeff measured on mapmyrun.  Sunny but temp around freezing, a few icy puddles on paths.  Route climbs quite a bit, lots of ups and downs, a few steep bits too.  Really enjoyed it. Wasn’t aiming for a time (except sub-3 hour), just got into nice rhythm from the off.  Felt very different heading so far out from home, compared to the shorter loops I usually do – good preparation for the marathon itself.

Distance (Nokia): 26.4km
Time: 2:45:16
Avg HR: 148bpm
Avg pace (Nokia): 6:17 min/km

Was surprised at pace considering how slow I did some hills!  One hill between Eckington and Halfway shows the big HR spike at 2h25. That hill even beat my car once, broke down halfway up it!

Felt good all round the loop, feels good to have done it. Ideal weather conditions too.
