Dedicated to Tony Hart, 1925 – 2009
So a few things to cover. A PR for 4 miles, and PR for 5 miles, and I got a heart rate monitor.
|4 miles isn’t so tough|
Going from 4 to 5 miles int he space of a week seemed like a good idea, so I did. Some slow splits (nearing 10 min/mile at times) but managed it in 48 mins, which is also a PR by default, as I think that is the first time I have ever run 5 miles continuously.
|Still hadn’t recovered from the 4 miles|
I got a heart rate monitor with mapmyrun.com joining their pro program, which has been fun to use. My target heart rate for a steady run is 150bpm, and I am usually over that at the moment.
