Lunch Run

Lower HR tonight ... around 133 bpm near the end and a record low 93bpm at the end of my cool down.  More sleep and much more relaxed tonight helped lower the HR.    So another 7ker at a moslty 5:10 pace is in the record books!

6 of 10 @ 5:10 on ZERO

Thats Eve #6 Run #6 of 10 planned  7kers at 5:10 pace but on almost ZERO sleep!   Best I felt all day ...  gotta love the run!   HR was around 137 near the end proving that running tired increased the HR

First Trail Run of 2015

10K on some tough trails Sunday .    The recent freeze/thaw/rain/freeze/freeze has made for some rather interesting conditions.  There is still almost a meter of snow here and there but the way the weather has been it is now supporting my weight ... most of the time.     So I headed out with a goal in mind of at least 10K and that is what I did in a whopping 1hr43min ...yikes!   It was a good substitute for an LSD this weekend because I was challenged in a different way.   I have been envious as of late of posts from running friends able to run trails.    The time in the bush just melted away.  I sure missed the trails this winter.  It was fun seeing all the tracks telling a tale of who and what was where all winter.     Did post hole until I was in the back of my property then I was sinking up to my Knee ... was real slow and cautious through these areas!

...and the data!

5 Higher

Lack of sleep ,  stressful day and a wee bit warmer in the Gym  made for a higher HR on this eves Run.   Was around 136 BPM in the final K at pace compared to 131 BPM last night.
