2C, cold and frosty, clear skies. A 7 mile run. Tried wearing the Fitbit Surge higher up my wrist for better HR tracking but it wobbled about. Moved it back to my wrist bone at 1.2k.
I think the average HR would have been in the low-mid 150s, but I literally sprinted the last 1.4k around Rother Valley. I’d been gradually catching up to a slower runner and expected to pass them easily around the northern lake. But they inexplicably speeded up, they’d not been doing intervals or fartlek up until then. So I lifted my knees and sprinted to the park exit and up the hill. A good exercise for my legs anyway.
The cold sunny weather was great, I loved the low sun beaming across the water.
