Day 85 Run Challenge

I was still feeling under the weather today, but had some Lemsip with decongestant and that got me going. The plan was to run 8 km at base pace (6:30-7:05 mins/km), so I took a scenic route through some trails I had yet to discover. I love running trails. There’s something soothing about running among trees that have been there for decades and will be for decades to come.

Ran 4.28 km in the 30 minutes at an average pace of 7:00 mins/km, average heart rate of 150 bpm.

Followed that up with 4 km in 27:34 at an average pace of 6:53, average heart rate of 160 bpm.

I had a stiff head wind for the second 4 km that dramatically increased my effort for the pace. Unfortunately that head wind wasn’t a tail wind for the first part 🙂
