what a great plod!
XB commented at the weekend how the Garmin liberates you to go off route and still have all the geeky (my word not his) numbers to look at afterwards
so off for a plod in the park - recovery run is the technical term
now it is not totally possible to keep your HR under control in my park but still I'll try
so a standard loop of the lake and field, listening to the birds thinking it's spring already
but still 20 minutes to do, so off across the golf course, just wandering in places I don't normally venture; some plodding, some walking up steep bits until eventually I get home
almost 44 minutes done, no tarmac and loads of fresh air
must do this more often!
and I realised that I could do my threshold runs around the lake where it is reasonably flat
the best bit?
seeing our retired GP walking her dog - she used to have two dodgy hips, but after two ops she is striding out across the golf course, like a woman half her age :>)
