3C, cool, overcast. Went round my usual 13 mile route, long run easy pace. Would have gone on the longer 15/16 mile loop but short of time as it’s Mother’s Day.
Listened to music today and it took my mind off the pace. Fitbit tells me I did some PR sections though I was running easy. At 9 miles I felt left adductor/hamstring stiffen a bit.
This pattern of weekend back to back gym/run or run/run could be my approach to training for the 55k trail ultra in July. Need to train on tired legs.
Fitbit seems hopeless at measuring heart rate because I have it loose near my wrist bone instead of tighter and higher up my forearm.
Had a muesli bar at home, then 2 gels and 250ml water on the run.
