Christmas Day!  A chilly -6C, but dry.  Went for two 4-mile loops to old Westfield.  Felt great, roads were empty, could have kept going easily.  No knee niggles 🙂  At the end I miscalculated and should have added a little loop to the postbox to get the full 8 miles, but never mind.

Distance:  11.96km
Time:  1:15:36
Avg HR:  146bpm
Avg pace:  6:19 min/km

Minus 9.5C, freezing cold, but streets relatively dry and ice-free.  Went for a 3 mile loop to tram terminus and back.  The extreme cold made it harder work for my muscles than usual, but felt fine.

Distance:  4.77km

Avg HR:  143bpm
Avg pace:  6:21 min/km

HRM working normally again, after fiddling with strap contacts and loading a software update (2.6) onto the watch and re-pairing with strap and footpod 🙂

Cold but dry, 0C. Did a 0.8km loop to postbox, then 2 loops to old Westfield.  Was surprised the right knee didn’t play up after feeling some ITB in the week.  This was the longest run so far this schedule, but could have carried on further.

Distance:  12.73km
Time:  1:19:44
Avg HR:  still not working
Avg pace:  6:15 min/km
