Mileage counter

Wednesday, 20 January 2010


I went for a cardiac output run today, it felt better than the last time as I was able to maintain a faster pace. That meant it was a lot less boring and annoying as the garmin was not beeping at me to slow down so often! I've decided that Tchaikovsky is no good to listen to on cardiac output runs! As soon as I started to listen to Tchaikovsky my garmin started beeping, I must just enjoy his music too much! It was a fairly nice jog for the most part but I saw a dead squirel whilst I was jogging and it was really upsetting. I can't get the image out of my head..

I tried to maintain a steady pace throughout the run except for a 1-2minute walk when I bumped into someone I used to box with. I also decided to sprint the end of the run, I started running at about 5.9 miles.. A bit of a screw up on my part, Mike and I moved house last October and I'm still not entirely sure about the area, I thought I was a lot closer to home than I was!
