A late evening run, was snowing all the way round. Did a 4 mile loop towards Killamarsh, past tram terminus, old Westfield and back along Hartland Avenue.
Distance: 7.3km (7.1km plus from home to bus stop and back from a false start)
Avg HR: 134bpm
Ran really slow/steady, really enjoyed it despite the snow. It was fine underfoot, just getting snow in the face. Probably a record low HR.

Freezing cold, thermometer said 0C, felt like -3C. Track bottoms and hat. Aimed for a steady run, felt like a good rhythm most of the way round and surprised it was a very good 50 minute time.
Total time: 50:10
Avg HR: 140bpm
A good run. Nice to see the dawn coming on the homeward part of an early morning run.

An evening run as I had to get to Leeds first thing. Very cold, so hat and track bottoms tonight. Tired after lugging laptop around on trains, but aimed for a decent pace. Felt very good on the last mile, got faster and good rhythm and thought I’d be able to push my PB time.
Avg HR: 142
Surprised at HR as I was sprinting the last part. A good run.
