training run #317

Posted on

Thursday 18 August, 06:06.

Cold, 10C, bright with sunrise breaking through.  Forearms very cold at the start but warmed up and was very nice conditions for running at RV.  Tried to adopt some of the barefoot running techniques I skimmed in the online book excerpts – bending the knee; mindful of not striking the ground; trying to imagine I was running barefoot and being more gentle and smooth; relaxing calf muscles, etc.  Felt good all the way and finished with very fresh legs, could have done it again straight off!  Did home-RV x2 laps-home again.  Slow pace – from a nice steady rhythm – but a world record low HR, at least my lowest for quite some time.

Distance:  11.71km
Time:   1:14:38
Avg HR:  138bpm
Avg pace:  6:22 min/km
Avg cadence:  84spm

    Seems like you’ve found something that works for you Steve. Keep on running ‘naked’ style 🙂
