VO2 Max 53!

I had a good run in Stornoway this morning, as usual it took 2-3 miles to get into, but once I was going it felt great.

I’d sort of planned to run for about 45 mins, but ended up running to a war memorial, 3.1 miles and decided a nice wee effort 10k was a good idea.

My heart rate was good, between 145-165, and I felt comfortable. It wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t hard either.

When I got back to the hotel my Garmin beeped lots at me:

3 records set: 1 mile, 5k and 10k.

New VO2 Max recorded: 53!
(Top of the range!)

Recovery time required: 31 hours.

Good stuff and nice to know I can still knock out a sub 50 10k without too much effort. Imagine how fast I’d go if I really tried! 😉
