Just completed my first ‘real’ run. I ran 2.5 kms in 20 mins non stop. Given that only 3 short weeks away I could not run for more than a minute without being out of breath I am impressed.
The limiting factor, interestingly, was not running out of puff but my muscles running out of umph. Its odd the way fitness moves.
I have just purchased a heart monitor and note that I am running at an averate heart rate of 155 bpm .. Hmm I wonder what this means. I guess I should read the manual.
Tomorrow is a rest day and then a nice easy 15 min run with breaks. The next big challenge is sunday which is a 25 min run. Looking forward in my schedule it does ramp up 2 weeks from now I will be doing a 60 minute run .. Hmm that should be a laff.
