In an odd twist, I thought I was getting the stat Victoria
Day off to lounge on the dock and catch some rays (and some zzz’s). That was
not to be however as my running partner @Wardy_ remembered that we had set a
running date and she would not take ‘no’ for an answer. Unlike most runners
though, it actually does take me a bit of time to get ready to run. It’s not
like I’m stalling, but I had to get my contacts in, get my running gear on and
then allow my Garmin to find me. The extra 10 minutes did try on @Wardy_’s
patience and soon thereafter we were on the road back to the Torrance Community
Centre (which is home base for runs and most of our rides).
originally planned, I may have been a tad overdressed (wearing a long sleeved
Adidas running top). I was warm right out of the gate, but because we were
doing a nice LSR (Long Slow Run) pace it was manageable. It was a good thing @Keilshammer and I didn’t
try to add this as a Brick after our ride. With the hills I was facing, I’m not
confident I would have made it.
running with @Wardy_), our pace was steady and it was a nice chat on a road
that wasn’t too crazy busy. Aside from one @sshat that buzzed us, all the
drivers gave us lots of space. We
finished a 4.15KM run in 31m15s and I felt good enough that in true Beez
fashion I closed out with a 50m sprint to end it. Our average pace was 7m32s per Km and I had a
max in the area of 2m30s in the last sprint portion. Heart rate was 141BPM average (which is about
right where I need it to be) and I maxed at 179BPM (guessing in the sprint
because I haven’t uploaded to Garmin Connect yet to analyze).
to Grove City PA to refresh my wardrobe.
Once I get back it’s off to the CrossFit Canada East Regionals for Fri –
Sun. Back to reality after that, but until then I’m kicking back dockside!
