Warm, bright day but little direct sun, went for 2 laps of RV with Jeff.  Brilliant run but could not keep my HR anywhere near Jeff’s!  Maintained easy 6 minute pace though.

Wednesday 10 August

Last day for the loan bike.  Cycled to work, very windy and light drizzle.  Found it easier on some of the hills as my legs have got stronger, able to stay in a slightly higher gear than when I first got the bike.

Handed bike back at lunchtime, got a voucher for 10% off at 3 bike Sheffield shops.

Sunday 7 August, 09:32.

Warm>hot, between 16-20C I guess.  Sunny with some cloud cover and breezy in parts.  Went for 3 long laps of RV.  Could not keep HR down but felt fine.  Carried 800ml water in Camelbak and drank most of it.  Had had a breakfast and waited 2 hours before the run so didn’t run out of energy.  Needed to loosen off laces on left foot at the end, had run the last half lap with slightly uncomfortable foot; might have been too tight to start with.

Distance:  14.4km
Time:  1:25:43
Avg HR:  161bpm
Avg pace:  5:57 min/km
Avg cadence:   83spm

Tuesday 2 August

Cycled to and from work.  A warm, sunny day so took it steady.  I felt a bit rusty after a 2 week break, but no problems.
