It has been an exceptionally busy week at work with 12 hour days - all the more reason to keep up the running. Although I "bonked" on Sunday, Monday and today were great 4 mile runs. They were very similar in pace - today's run looked like this:
Mile 1: 10:51
Mile 2: 11:17
Mile 3: 11:49 (walking break)
Mile 4: 10:39
Final for 4.01 miles: 44:42 min with avg heart rate of 165 bpm.
The runs felt great, and although I feel a bit tired at the start, unlike Sunday, the tiredness fades and I go stronger on the final mile.
What is great is that I am back to running in the morning. I forgot how much I enjoy watching the sun come up. I am convinced that there is more energy in the morning!
Run strong everyone! :-)
