10 mins L1
10 mins L4 [ 139-147 bpm] then finished with 17 mins at L1
Work level based on a Max of 160 bpm
I followed a very hilly course along the roads of Parbold and Harrock Hill which inc 5 climbs.
From the start the heavens opened up, at first big globs of rain drops then heavy showers, turning the narrow lane up the first climb into a river, I got a brief rest from the downpour as I made my way down the quarry rd, but the heavy showers were soon to return for the rest of the run, at least I did not feel cold.
I took no gels or drinks during the session, but was still able to finish the last hard effort [ 10k pace] quite strongly.
