That’s it, last training run before Sunday’s half! And new shoes - replacement for my oldest On Cloudflyers that are knackered, have a hole by the star lacing, and I think were contributing to my knee problem.
This was supposed to be all in zone 2. Not a chance!! I don’t know if it’s pre race adrenalin, but I was utterly unable to control my heart rate. It kept spiking then dropping, and it stayed in zone 3 for the latter half of this run, with a big spike into zone 4.
Wild, wet and windy, though I managed to avoid most of the rain.
