Wednesday 8 July, 5.55am.
Sunny, nice cool morning. Lots of rabbits everywhere!
A mix of training runs; 15 mins easy run, then 1 min walk / 3 min run, three and a bit 4 reps to finish.
Time on 4k lap 29.05. Avg HR 139bpm; peak HR 151. The peak represents only 9 seconds above 149bpm, and was due to me thinking what I’d do to the thieves that broke into my shed at 4.30am and nicked my bike! I’d been controlling my HR fine but then my thoughts wandered and I imagined chasing the thieves and HR monitor started beeping!
A good run. (Was one day early for the new plan (should have been on Thursday), but no problem).
