It was two days since the 2k sessions that took the most out of me. Yesterday I had a resting day, which was very needed, but today I still didn’t feel like going out for a run. It wasn’t that I didn’t feel fully recovered, more then that it felt like I didn’t want to spend an hour and a half of my beloved saturday evening out running in Alingsås. Especially not since most of the time earlier on the day was spent on a Calculus assignment (for those who hasn’t read it yet I’ve started studying for a bachelor degree in Physics on distance – yikes!). Well, sometimes before a run it just feels that way. But.. Like all times earlier I put on the clothes this time too and went out. And like before I can’t picture not running once I’ve got those legs going in a motion forward 🙂
Today I saw that the Garmin started messing early on, so I decided to let go of the heart rate and just relax. It felt very liberating. Usually I spend every half minute keeping track on the heart rate so that it doesn’t wander off. I’ll have to do it this way more often – Just find a comfortable pace and keep going..
Other than that the running conditions were almost perfect. No icy surface, plus 5 degrees and a little moist in the air. Nothing to complain on at all..
