Graphs for those who like them. And, phew, I’m back at productive training load instead of overreaching! Lesson well and truly learned. Today’s run was 65 minutes, all in zones 1&2. I think I’m getting better at controlling the zones as I only had to stop a few times and only for seconds to get my hr back down. 6.04km and 10.14min/km, so speeding up a bit in the lower zones too. That’s what it’s all about.
My new On Cloudswift shoes are going to have to go back. They are giving me hip and knee pain. They are usually brilliant at fitting there, but it was a young chap I’ve never seen before, and he didn’t seem to know what he was doing. I kept having to ask him to check the shoes to see how they fit. Sadie-runs I don’t think they would do for you as the lacing doesn’t finish high enough up the foot, and there are no extra holes for heel lock lacing.
