That was a long run for you. Twice as much as you intended. Your HR showed how truly fit you are !
Great work building up to 36 miles in week. A far cry from my weekly totals
Sorry I almost misled you folks, I should have used the words " on a different tack"! Still it must have looked rather amusing the way it seemed.
RV is flatter and just one lap. Whereas Hallam is 2 laps with the small loop after the start to be done 3 times. Also one side of the course has several inclines but after turnaround the route is gently downhill which gives some relief. Added to that there are some narrow bits which gives rise to more congestion with the multitude of runners. A 2 lapper can be rather offputting as elite runners lap much of the field as anyone running slower than 10 and 1/2 minute pace soon discovers. Hope that makes sense! That is why I do prefer a solo lap
Little running this week with really only one day of note. That was 4.5 miles making it the most ran in a day this year!
We had some trouble with plumbing, water was leaking through the laminated flooring in dining room. Eventually, plumber found source, a poor connection in the soil stack. After that was put right we then had the builder in to replace damaged laminates the next day.
Ran another 5k race this time back at the Hallam route which is a little harder than Rother Valley 5k. Had to choose Hallam as the 5k at RV was cancelled due to a 10k race at same venue and I am not fit enough to cover 6 miles yet.
Weather perfect for running, hardly any wind though the park trees always afford shelter whenever it is windy.
Result slightly better than last Saturday.
Mile laps...10.43, 10.29, 10.31, and 1.15 for 0.15m. Official result 33m.06s Age % 57.25 402 out of 455. You can imagine how congested the field of runners was, certainly in the first mile ! Guess who was oldest in that lot
