Week 11, Day 4: Back in the Game!!


Week 11, Day 4


Goal: 6 mile build up run starting at 9 min/miles finishing at 6:30 min/miles

Goal: 6 mile build up run starting at 9 min/miles finishing at 6:30 min/miles


Woo hoo!!

Back in the game! Feeling a lot better after the antibiotics have finally kicked in so tackled the 6 mile build up run. I took it very steadily and stopped for 30 secs after the 7:30 min/mile to gauge how I was feeling (fine … not too coughy!) and after the 7 min/mile (again fine!) and managed to complete the run without too much coughing or complaining! It felt a bit harder than it should have but that could just have been the result of a week off and finally venturing out into the dark and cold from my nice warm house!

The times look ok, but when I checked the HR data (new HR strap thanks to a Twitter buddy! @Beer_n_Blisters), it looks as though my heart rate is still about 10 – 15 BPM quicker than normal.

Splits:

Mile 1: 9:01

Mile 2: 8:29

Mile 3: 7:59

Mile 4: 7:33

Mile 5: 7:02

Mile 6: 6:29


Cool down for .75 mile at 8:24 min/mile.
