OK. Well as above, got a sore leg, had a bloody lazy week, only one 6.56 miles in one run and one weights session this week, so thanks to all you that encourage me on here I felt really bad, at being such a lazy git.... So I really wanted to plod out a run.
I am doing the heart rate running and meant to be going really slow.
So I started out thinking just plod slowly.... Well I screwed that up... I did the first 3 miles at marathon pace at 133 bpm. So I was annoyed i wanted to be in the 120s but nope, I was at 133bpm after 3 miles, and so had no chance of getting lower, I then set out to just get my arse in gear and try not to get much higher, and keep plodding along.
So... I ended up plodding along for quite a while and managed to keep my average at 133bpm for the whole run.
Errr ummm I got a little carried away, but had to get some milage in if I wanted to get near the 1,000 for the year. So I err umm somehow ended up doing 24.2km / 15.1 miles woohoo
So I think i'm up around 925miles for the year.
really chuffed that I managed to slog out over 15 miles ridiculously slowly as i'm trying when i remember to keep my heart rate down. So don't laugh 2h 59m for just 15 miles, but hey I did it.
Feeling chuffed that I got my arse in gear. A lot of it down to the help and encouragement from the people on here.
