I’m thinking I’m going to get a run outside this week some time!! (instead of relying on the treadmill and gym opening times).
This morning I had 5 miles to run to complete 262 miles before the end of the year (since mid October). I decided I’d try and do the full 5 miles. But when I got on the treadmill the 8k was far from what I wanted to do.
I made the run easy, between 10.5-12kph, bit still found it quite hard after the hill session yesterday and the weights. My legs were sore and heavy, but once I got to 4k on just over 22 mins I felt ok to finish the 8k (5 miles).
I finished the 5 miles in just under 44 mins. By no means fast but I felt good to finish my challenge I set.
Run: 5M, 43:36, 500 calories
Ave HR: 162 (85%) , Max HR: 177 (93%)
After the run I recovered then went on a bike for 10 minutes. I was going to do the spin bike but it had been removed. Trial over. :-(. 10 mins on the bike = 100 cals, just over 3k.
Wednesday I give blood, and I might go for a run before it, depends what the pavements are like.
