It was a hot one today, but I had set my target for the day and wasn’t diverting. I felt a bit tired yesterday, so I pulled a rest day in preparation for today. Back to today, and after a leisurely morning, I set out to conquer the full Hope-Flaxley Wood Loop, 9k. My plan was to run to the beat of my heart. Above 160 I walked, back to 150 I ran again. I kept to that throughout and it was a pretty good regime. I’ll probably aim to use it again for future runs, at least for a while, and hopefully I’ll see my times and distance run vs walk, improve.
