Wednesday night… and it was exactly the same as last week as I was walking home… spitting rain… then raining heavily when we got out for our run! Only this week… when we were running – the rain was teaming down!!
It was proper rain when we left… raining at a 45 degree angle. Luckily at the start it was behind us, and 5 minutes in we were thinking we should really stop trying to avoid the puddles and just get stuck in. We got a little shelter under the Kingston Bridge, but kept ploughing on.
We left 10 minutes later than last week, and it was a lot darker than last week. Dark from about 5 or 10 minutes in. Hence the reflective bits… and I even had a little torch with me. We seemed to start quite quickly (because of the rain) and managed the same pace as last week: 8:46 minute miles.
Surprisingly my HR was much higher this week…(last week Ave HR: 142 (78%), Max HR: 153 (81%)…for the same distance, same route, same time, same pace!!) – how very odd…!!
It was fun anyway… my feet were absolutely soaked through as was everything else!
RUN: 4M, 35:34, Pace: 8:46, Calories: 434.
Ave HR: 155 (82%), Max HR: 184 (97%)
