Mild, overcast, 15C. Went for the usual 7 mile run. Took it steady on the first lap, it seemed to be an OK pace around 5:37 min/km and mid 130s heart rate. Then on the second lap I noticed a runner a short distance behind me and, quite irrationally, I picked up my speed. Compared to my usual everyday pace I was sprinting along, one of the km splits I noticed was 5:04 min/km. The runner didn’t overtake me and disappeared after a while. No niggles during the run but afterwards I can feel a slight something on right shin. Surprised by the relatively low average heart rate, and the number of rabbits I saw today. There was a light rain shower for the last three km; nice and refreshing.
Avg HR: 144bpm 🙂
Avg pace: 5:30 min/km
Rabbits seen: 19 on one lap! Saw some on the second lap too (6) but don’t want to double count them.
