8.36am About to set off to work.
Planned my first long run this morning. 15 miles. Had the route sorted and the alarm went off. Took my resting HR and it was up 15 from yesterday and I felt drained. Took the executive decision that 2 hours extra sleep was the wise choice. HR came right down after the extra. Will increase lunchtime run so instead of short recovery I’ll go longer at a more steady pace. With luck a 10 miler.
Given my first tough weekends training for along time starts tomorrow today turning out easier than planned is no bad thing.
18.09 After work
Managed a lunchtime run. It flew by as we chatted the whole way round. 10 miles, 77 minutes and it means I’ve run everyday of 2007 so far but we don’t really want to get into that sort of thing do we ?
