Set out on my 2nd post-grad run just before lunch today. This time I found the route a bit easier. However I think I set off running at too fast a pace as by the time I was into the second 5mins HRM was showing a heart rate of 176. Way too high for me. Therefore, I slowed the pace but my average was 132 at the end, still too high really for my age plus I'm on beta-blockers. So I will have to keep an eye on that.
I was feeling good at the end so ran for an extra minute. Not much I know but hopefully I can increase slightly each time or at least each week.
This morning I went in to my local LIDL as I knew that they had golf balls on offer today. (Bought 2 doz) Of course you can't ignore all those aisles up the middle with the special offers. And guess what? There was some lovely running wear on sale. So I came out with golf balls and a running top. Nice bright fluorescent yellow. Wife's reaction was "Oh my goodness!"
Still wondering if I have got my grad badge yet.
Happy running everybody.
