Planned run 40 minutes

Date: 24 Feb 2009
Time: 41 minutes 13 seconds
Distance: 7.8758
Approx Speed: 11.46 kmh
Average Heart Rate: 156
Google Ped: route

This was a much better run than my last. Slight head ache, but more energy. Pace was pretty good and I could have gone faster.

I also did a much more thorough warm up this time - 15 minutes total, including stretches and jog/sprint sequence. Ended up with heart rate at about 136 bpm when I started the run.

Something that had not occurred to me is that if I begin with a normal resting heart rate the average will be skewed to a lower value. So previous heart rate averages where I have not been warming up properly are not accurately representing my fitness.
