Day 16 Run Challenge

Today was the earliest I’ve run for a very long time. And on a Sunday too. I started at 7:30 am, to finish before breakfast with my wife’s family.

Took Jamie in the pram with me too. Obviously I was slower than the last few days, but a lot faster than last time I took him in the pram, on the same course. I went 400 metres further in the same time, which is pretty cool. 12% faster in one week.

It was pretty cold when I ran (~8C), so I made sure to do a longer than normal warmup. Also ran most of it with a jumper. Jamie was rugged up as snug as a bug in a rug lol. I thinkĀ  the cold was a major factor in keeping a very steady heart rate and pace throughout. The first km was 7:25, but the rest were within 6 seconds of each other.

Ran 3.81 km in 30 minutes at average pace of 7:52 mins/km, average heart rate of 150 bpm.
