I am managing around 30-35km of running with around 6-7km of that as quality sessions. So I am feeling a lot more comfortable, but still very cautious.
I did the 4km relay leg yesterday. Splits below:
1st - 3:53 - HR 159 bpm
2nd - 3:51 - HR 172 bpm
3rd - 4:13 - HR 181 bpm
4th - 3:01 - HR 188 bpm (0.75km).
I set off nice and comfortable and was surprised to see my pace so fast with such a low HR for the 1st and 2nd km. Then as I turned on the course, the wind hit me. I must have had a great tailwind for the first 2km, and then into it on my way back on the loop. I never felt like I actually slowed down, and the effort was higher, just couldn't fight the 40km/h headwind....
Did an easy 7.7km jog this morning, HR average 133bpm, and pace was around 5:46/km.
Rest day tomorrow and then the 5k race on Wednesday evening.
