Morning all. Very grey rainy day here today. 3.9 degrees and I had a 7.2km run to do fast. My asics training plan seems to be working. I set my Garmin up with a workout - warm up, run 7.2km at a pace between 5 and 5:40 mins/km, cool down. So that was my first mistake. I set off did the warm up - fine. Started the run. I'd been running a while thinking I must have done a kilometre by now but Miss Garmin was quiet. Oh well at least I must be within the right pace so I carried on. A bit later check Miss Garmin oh I've done nearly 3km and she has decided not to tell me so I can tick off the KM. Rats so I put my head down and just tried to run as evenly as possible not too fast at the beginning. Getting closer to the end of the run I had to do the double back to ensure I got to the right distance.
Really pretty graphs and I did the 7.2km in 40:32. As if that wasn't good enough Miss Garmin tells me my lung capacity has improved VO2 Max is now 44 which puts me in the blue Excellent category for my age - whoop whoop.
Happy Running all
