Well after running by myself for a couple of weeks I thought I would give one of the Counch 2 5K+ podcasts a go this morning.
So selected Speed and off I went.
5 minute warm walk up and then the warm up run all Ok.
Then Laura says next we are going to run at 165bpm!! for a minute, then slow back down to 150bpm repeating 6 times.
Well I did 5 of the 6 165bpm runs, got all out of step on the second one. Much harder than I thought it was but will do these during the week. Its only about 5 minutes shorter but a lot harder.
One thing noticed this morning that it is a lot darker now at 420am. Might have to start doing my runs in the evenings soon.
PS Got to work today to find my newest piece of gadgetry had arrived.
A new Polar M400 running watch with another HRM. Giving this HRM to my brother as I already have one. Should be interesting to see what is HR is like on his runs.
