Cool, light breeze, sunny, maybe 13C. Went for 3 laps of both lakes at RV, 9 miles. Started at a decent pace and tried to keep it up (committed to getting everyone out shopping mid-morning). Started to tire on 3rd lap and worked hard to maintain good posture/form. Realised HR was going up and up, because of effort (RPE maybe an 8), heat, and lack of hydration. Thought of taking Camelbak but couldn’t find all the innards. A good run but thighs tired and left shoulder telling me I’d been using my arms a bit. No injury or signs of ITBFS 🙂
Avg HR: 157bpm
Avg pace: 5:54 min/km
On Garmin Connect it says peak HR of 171bpm is 98% of my max; I think I could get it much higher if I pushed harder!
