Well done Donaldo. It's always good to dig deep and see results.
What: jog up to the gym, weights then jog down again Why: It's Friday
Busy day today, need to squeeze in chores, some work and then drive down to Chipping Sodbury way for a weekend with a bunch of old school friends for our annual weekend away. Wine and chocolate: check. Barcode: check. yes, I shall be a Parkrun tourist if the weather isn't too rubbish.
OH, give it a go. I'm sure they will be welcoming.
Calm down emzap!!!
As for me, I dragged my unwilling bones out to do my session.
Jogged just over 1.6 miles to the only bit of what passes for flat road around here to do my reps. The road appears flat but there's a very slight incline (enough to feel in either direction). I wasn't sure what I'd manage for the reps - last time I did this the reps were all around 9:20mm pace.
I started in the 'uphill' direction. The reps are off 90 secs (mostly walking) recovery.
05:48 time/ 09:21mm av pace/ 158 av HR 05:44 time/ 09:15mm av pace/ 159 av HR 05:46 time/ 09:18mm av pace/ 160 av HR 05:39 time/ 09:08mm av pace/ 157 av HR (eh?) 05:43 time/ 09:15mm av pace/ 159 av HR 05:37 time/ 09:04mm av pace/ 156 av HR
Then I jogged home. The two speediest reps are obviously in the 'down' direction!
Quite pleased with that as a session.
Now back to some Spanish revision as my class is at 1pm.
Wabo - just decided I wanted to do something constructive when I packed in my job and, as we go to Lanzarote a lot, Spanish seemed like a good thing to do. Unfortunately I'm not as good at doing my homework as I should be - the time just flies by and suddenly I find it's time for the next class and I've done nothing!
Gorgeous morning here in Kent. Pottered along gently aiming to keep HR under 135 bpm. Difficult on the lumpy routes I have here. But pleased with av pace of 11m/m dead, for av HR of 128.
I ought to go to the gym today but appointments are scheduled to make it almost impossible to fit a gym visit in between them. My own fault I guess. Only 6 weeks left of this work contract to go and then I have a break.
