Surprise quite a few heads showed up and so we went for the run. It was slight drizzle with lots of puddles. Got splashed a bit but with the rain it did not feel bad.
Was late to run today plus the rain made outside run a no no...It was as usual but bow heart rate is significantly lower. Hope this helps in tomorrows speed run.
Finally we could find common time and trainer showed up today. It was brutal a lot different from what I expected it to be just focus on muscle.
He went after strengthening the core and stability... I am anticipating that Monday I won't be able to sit up...
Nevertheless need to relax for tomorrow's run and see if legs are good. I want to try pushing the 6k boundary and go close to 10.
If I do end up coming close to 8 I might sign up for sportinglife10k.ca on 11th may..
Tried to build a tetra field. It was some what like tetra..
It was not strenuous as yesterdays runs, it was simple 3.5K. Went up University this time and I hate the up hill climb.
Finally figured out why my distance was off 2nd time today. My Garmin 610 registered it was 2.56K on maps and other GPS was 3.5K.
It was the foot pod ...it assumes i have same stride length all time which is not true in real life(unlike treadmill)...I have not tested my theory yet but sounds logical.
I also got a small hand held bottle ..Yesterdays run I was dry and a sip of water would have helped a lot.
So most of the new group showed up for the pre-10K training run. It was bit faster than what I still can do but not bad.
Strangely my GPS clocked on 4.74K where most others did 5+ ..nevertheless it was good to run outside again.
Need to get a small water bottle with sun staying out longer its a necessity.
So surprise using foot pod I got a GPS lock ..not sure if it was just a co-incidence ..Any ways the cadence was no where close to what I got on treadmill. I guess you cannot expect that but it was not bad. Here goes the details ...
Suprisingly for a change my place had power during this outage and had to run indoor during the spring snow storm and cold winds...sigh ...
