So today went for a run in the park at 7am this morning. Figured it would be the best time to run before the heat of the day kicked in. At first I thought to myself, slow down. So I slowed down and then before I knew it I was on the last run. After giving myself a once over I realised I didn't feel like I had been trying hard and it occurred to me that maybe I could run a little faster. So that's what I did, I ran a little faster and completed it. The weird thing for me is that even whilst doing all this extra running, my heart rate was pretty good compared to week 1 when I was hitting 178 hr. My max on the last run was 174 and only because I ran faster. Even after I finished the podcast I still felt like running more but I councillled myself out of extra runs for today. I'll probably pick up the pace a bit tomorrow.
