Done! 10.2 miles around the West End, along the Clyde turn up to and in Kelvingrove Park, around the West End and back. 👍🏻🏃♀️
I ended up doing:
2 mile warm up then:
4×1 mile efforts and recoveries (splits 2,4,6,8 efforts).
2 mile cool down
❤️ avg HR 157, max 177, Garmin training effect 4.7, vo2 max 50.
A new lactate threshold recorded on my Garmin too – 7:48 min miles / 165 HR ❤️
You can see my heart rate was increased on splits 2,4,6 and 8 for the efforts. 8:02, 7:43, 8:26 (uphill) and 7:50 min miles with 154,168, 169 and 164 HR. 🙂
I left the house at 9:59am, saw a cute little house martin fly along at the Clyde, I raced the Waverley as it paddled away from the Clydeside (it won 😳). I think of my Dad when I see the Waverley.
I passed a really old lady with 2 walking sticks, walking her dog. And a man sitting on a bench next to the Kelvin river, contemplating and about to crack open a bottle of MD2020. 😳 I almost stopped to ask him why at 11am, but thought I’d better not.
10.2 good miles in the bag on a Saturday morning. Running most definitely is my medicine! It makes me feel great (no need for MD2020 either).
45.8 miles in, 57% of the way through the month. 💯 mile 🎯
A nice wee morning out running, it was a little warm, but ok. Good time to myself to think (when I wasn’t doing the efforts because I can’t think when I’m doing them!!) 👍🏻😜
Things have been a challenge in the last few months for me with one part of my life, and I’ve decided I’m going to get my spark back and start thinking – ‘What would Super Lorn do?’ More to come about that soon. Or maybe it’s the crazy endorphins talking?! 😜
Now it’s time for rehydration, refuel, shower and lunch. And maybe some more gardening later. 🌲 🌳🍀🍂🍁💐🌹🌷🌸🌺
