Tempo home

Tonight Katrina & I are off to the King’s Threatre in Glasgow to see ‘WE WILL ROCK YOU’ so I ran home from work as I’ll miss the club run tonight.

I was aiming to run around 7.15min per mile. I tried to set up a pace alert on my garmin but for some reason the sound isn’t working. It’s no big deal as I normally have the sound turned off anyway.

So I used the virtual runner instead. I set it for 9miles at 7.15pace and I kept ahead of the little guy on the screen the whole way. I ended up running at 6.55pace which I was pleased with.

It was good to be able to push the pace after yesterday’s slower recovery run.

BTW – thanks for the comments on how to keep the pace easy on a recovery run. I particularly liked the suggestion of running with your mouth closed. I’m going to try that one tomorrow when I run back into work.

I ran a different way home tonight, keeping mainly on the roads rather than the cycle track ….

So just a couple of easier runs tomorrow and Friday then a rest day on Saturday before our whw training run on Sunday. I’m really looking forward to the section. Drymen to Balamha is always fun up and over Conic Hill then the Balmaha to Beinglas section alongside the Loch is always a good test of how well I’m going.

I’m told by our weather girl, Debs M-C, that the forecast is good so I hope she’s right.
