Run test

Second run in two days… And the numbers are not great! I decided to run 10km on the treadmill – 46 minutes flat; that’s 4:36/km and only half the story. In that time my HR climbed from a sedentary 138bpm to a rattling 159; That’s a drift of 21 bpm and an indicator of lack of base fitness. Of note is the fact that I was never taxed during the session – when I’m fit 159 is a barely sub maximal pace that would have me spraying sweat all over the gym, so fitness and possible heat are the factors. I’ll repeat the test on Wednesday 3rd of Febuary and see how a week of training changes things. I’ll then repeat it every 4 weeks.
Tonight I shall do nothing – easy does it.
