Unspectacular

Today was quite unspectacular. It was neither a bad run nor a particularly good one.

I had no plan and went down the beach. I had the bright idea to test different surfaces and check my pace for each at my 144 heart rate.

Including the stairs of hell:

I was pleased to see my soft sand pace is now 9 minutes/km and it is one minute faster on pavement.

I even have to start running up smaller inclines I used to have to walk to keep my low heart rate.

I noticed it got a bit harder to keep the heart rate up at least while on the beach/street.

I also did the ice cold sea bath for my feet/ankles and calves afterwards which is such a treat!

  1. It all sounds good. There are definite signs of improving fitness! I’m convinced. I’d better get out and do mine now, after lying in bed for 3 cups of tea!!
