We did the first 5 miles in around 51 mins. Fiona runs at around 10 minutes miles, so it was a good time for 5 miles. It was nice to take it easy too – my HR was at 133 on average – 70% of my max – just inside the fat burning zone. 🙂
Lucky for us the weather was pretty bad – the wind wasn’t too bad – but it was typical glasgow rain showers… heavy for about 10 mins, then light…then heavy…..
I dropped off a lucozade drink half way round, so we stopped and had it. And at that point it was POURING!! It was pretty funny – and I don’t actually mind running in the rain. But we both agreed if we hadnt arranged to meet up – we wouldn’t have gone out a run. So I’m glad we arranged it.
We stopped for 5 minutes to take on the juice and a gel – then kept going and finished 10.7 miles in 1 hour 50. 5.8 mph and around 1100 calories burned.
I was starving after it – so had a thai green curry, two slices of toast and a mars bar, before teaching swimming at 4.
