GOODBYE OLD FRIEND R.I.P.
Sad news while out on my Saturday long run, My faithfull and fautless 3 year old Garmin passed away, I miss you :[
Had to dig my heart rate montior out for this session;
18 x 2 mins [alternating 2 mins level 3 with 2 mins level 4] with 1 min rec between each 2 min effort. plus 5 x smart strides. Total time 1.04
Ran in my Nike Mayfly racers, Vintage 4 years old!
Whats interesting here is they are recommended for a max use of only 60 miles, yet mine have done over 200 miles so far and the midsole is still like new.
They cost only £25 new, which makes me think once more how much we are getting ripped off with the price of the new wave of minimalist shoes on the market right now!
Level 3 = 1/2 MP pace 5.59 [ 80%- 85% MHR], Level 4 = 10k pace 5.44 [87%-92% MHR]
Easy run with Tess and Jon, sandhill 6 = 1.20
Long run over Parbold and ashurst Beacon, mostly off road, felt quite good on the climbs of Stony lane, Hunters Hill, really powered up the main road climb of Parbold and finished off with the off road climb up ashurst and on to the Beacon. = 1.55
