HBC run for canada

My official chip time: 53:08.

That's awesome. Pace of 5:19/km. Awesome

Shaved off about a minute and a half of my last race (so of course a PB!). Awesome.

I think this run was harder (as I went faster it makes sense). It had a lot more hills too. Plus running alone was harder. My awesome husband came to cheer me on though so that was great.

Then I went out on the lake all afternoon with friends of ours. Tubing was awesome. It was too windy so skiing and wake boarding sucked. (not that I can do either of those things but whatever). Such a great day. But I'm very tired now, and I have to work in the morning.

Happy Canada Day.

Yay you! That is an awesome new PB.

I have a book suggestion for you, I just picked this one up at the library: '5K and 10K Training' by Brian Clarke. The main focus is on developing your own training plans, but it has some great basic information about workout effort and energy which really explains why you can run faster for races and feel so much more tired after. Turns out you actually have more energy available for races, if you tapered prior and feel at all competitive about racing.

Also, the book uses heart rate as a way of measuring a workout (lots of graphs throughout the book) so it might help you use your Garmin more effectively.
