The IGP™ called for 45 minute 5/1 today. I decided to go with the 120 bpm speed limit again, just to see where it would go. Today, oddly enough, I didn't seem to be going much, if any slower than usual. I ran a slightly different route so I can't compare directly to other runs. Leave that for Thursday morning.
The run itself was excellent. I was mostly under 120 or so, with one blip up to 130 when I chugged up a small hill at the same pace, then brought it back down to 122 while still running. What was really cool is that sunrise happened during the run, so I could actually see my watch without angling it toward a light or turning on the internal light.
Stretching to start, with a minute walking briskly
7 x 5R/1W with a few minutes cool down walking after, then more stretching.
45 minutes total.
Today I ran south of 8th Ave, toward the Bow River. I was thinking of running along the river toward the zoo, but they've got it blocked off for some reason. Oh well. Ran back to the car, then a little further, and back again.
I am in serious blog withdrawl here. In spite of adding some new blogs to follow, only Julie updated hers. Susi and Greg have an excuse, and I recall Kelly saying she was off to Deadmonton this weekend, but I'm wondering what everybody else was up to?
Here comes spin class!
