Hot, 18C, sunny, breezy in parts.  Ran from home – Avenue – 3 laps of RV – Avenue – home.  Steady 6 min/km pace.  Drank 500ml water and still struggled with the heat in this early morning.  A good run.

A milestone run.  Reached 300 runs in 27 months; started March 2009.

Mild, sunny, breezy, 18C.  Went for 3 laps of RV trying to keep a decent pace.  Felt strong throughout, knew my cadence was slightly increasing with each lap.  In fact felt good enough to run up out of RV and along the Avenue home to add a km at the end.  RV was surprisingly empty apart from some gathered watching a waterski competition, everyone else probably off having their tea.  Brilliant run.

Distance:  15.65km
Time:  1:32:18
Avg HR:  156bpm
Avg pace:  5:53 min/km
Avg cadence:  83spm

Managed to drag myself out of bed for a run, 11C, sunny, light breeze, perfect conditions.  Saw 11 rabbits on lap 2 🙂  Did 2 laps at 6 min/km pace, easy, enjoyable.  Time was 2 seconds less than Tuesdays run, almost identical, except for lower HR and slightly faster cadence.

Distance:  9.49km
Time:  56:46
Avg HR:  147bpm
Avg pace:  5:59 min/km
Avg cadence:  85spm
