Perhaps you have a new career as a motivator for runners, Ceal.
I thought it was a nice touch from Gerry and the club to raise money for the lido, it'll be good to see brought back into effective use again.
I preferred the 3 lap course, not least that you had markers that you could judge how you felt on each lap compared to the others. Some runners were commenting that they may ask Gerry if that course could be used for the summer races.
Today was the Lakeside 5k (Garmin connect for Mick to look at my HR profile) on a new 3 lap course because of the park & ride scheme running from the old IBM building to the historic dockyard. Each lap was roughly a mile, which I found better than the normal. Target today was to get under that 22 mark.
Garmin splits are
1) 1m - 6:57(6:57/m) 152/160bpm - started off a bit too quick but steadied the pace 2) 1m - 6:58(6:58/m) 158/160bpm - trying keep the effort the same, picking people off 3) 1m - 6:58(6:58/m) 160/162bpm - again concentrate on effort, only one person came past me 4) 0.08m - 30(6:24/m) 162/162bpm - didn't think I'd speed up, but I did
Time 21.24, ave 6.57, ave HR 157, wHR83% and AG of 72.42%.
I think the bit that pleased me was that I checked my watch at the end of the first mile and then didn't look again until the end but was able to achieve almost even splits.
Diana well done on your run, they do seem to come from no-where sometimes don't they.
Graham, that seems a very callous way to treat you. There is no excuse for a lack of manners, you know what you did towards the project and you shouldn't let Mark's behaviour detract from your achievement in supporting him.
NZC well done on your 10k, not sure I could run that far on the track.
