Another slow run in this recovery week. In this one I stopped at a couple of places to get water. Again I deliberately took it easy. But I also took to the grass verge as much as I could to ease impact.
I ended up 2 seconds slower per km than yesterdays run, and my heart rate ended up lower at 139bpm average - compared to 143bpm yesterday. It may be the extra day/night recovering from the recent HM race I did that led to a lower heart rate.
Such a low heart rate is quite amazing to me. Compared to last year it is around 7bpm lower generally, and that is indicative of greater efficiency overall.
I plan to use my hilly course on my next run, I have a rest day tomorrow, then run next day.
