Week 7 Run Challenge Complete

49 days, 7 weeks down hey. Not too shabby. Unlike today’s run, which was a little disappointing, though not unexpected.

I couldn’t reach 4 km today, which breaks an 11 day streak. I think it was due to a combination of the heat (about 28° Celsius) and a tasty, but filling lunch (thanks Steve lol). Add to that the sprint training and additional mileage I’ve done the last two days and it’s not a recipe for fast running.

First km was 7:07 and it was all downhill from there. Even had a 7:56 km, which I haven’t had since Melbourne.

Ah well, whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Except an autoimmune disease. No that’s a statement, not a joke.

I ended up running 3.93 km in the 30 minutes at an average pace of 7:39 mins/km, average heart rate of 150 bpm.

My overall average for this challenge is now at 3.95 km, which is pretty alright. Below is the chart of my weekly pace for the challenge.
