good parkrunning, folks - impressive in the wind, Speedy - are you satisfied with how the comeback is progressing?
headed away from our usual Saturday routes today to avoid the wind - more of a lower-altitude, flatter route, but the last 5 or so miles back home were therefore pretty hilly, windy and tough. 20 bagged, but tbh I'd had enough after about 18. Should make the 2,200 now.
One Gear - I too have no clue about heart rate, and rarely stretch ! I do wish I had your conversion, though - I've traditionally been around 2 x half + 10/12 mins . Your 2 x half + 3 min would have given me a 2:35 PB ! Maybe you should become "A Few Gears" - your results are impressive based on the one paced training, maybe there's more to come if you experiment a bit. Stick around, at any rate !
PMJ - I'm aiming at 2200, a ton behind you - currently at 2132, so 68 required. Social 20 planned tomorrow, so all should fall into place . . . .
That's brilliant, OneGear - fancy sharing a bit more of your back story with us? A month or so away from 29 years recorded running here, with this morning's 5 giving me 56,525 on the clock, so definitely old running legs, although I'm still young in heart and mind . . . .
