Yesterday I moaned about a less than stellar run. Probably felt a tiny itsy bitsy bit sorry for myself. Today I told myself "sod that, you just get out there and show that route what you REALLY think of it, Tomas". So I did.
Yesterday I was picked up by my other half after an hour and a half. Today I was home in 45 minutes. Yesterday my legs were aching and my mood was rubbish. Today my legs felt better when I got home than when I left, and my mood was right up there!
So THERE, stupid route!
Only aber-dabei was that I was cycling today. Not quite the done thing for a runner, but at least I got around the route with time to spare for a shower.
And a question, if I may, to anyone who cycles and measures heart rate. I put on my HRM and got it linked to my trusty GPSMAP 62 (a hiking gps rather than a work-out thingy). The heart rate graph shows my heart rate warying between 115 and 125 despite me huffing and puffing the same way as when my HR is up around 150 when running. Does this point to the reporting being wrong, or is running THAT much easier on the heart?
