It was so hot tonight! Today got to 37° and tomorrow is set to be 39° so no doubt tonight was going to be a scorcher. I left home at 9:30 pm hoping I might escape some of the heat but I still copped it. My legs are recovering from a strength training session as well so I thought a slow run would be perfect.
Actually, I felt like I could go 10 km! But it was getting late. I love slow runs because there is no pressure to beat the clock, I just get to run and think about life.
- Distance: 8 km
- Time: 56:30
- Max heart rate: 189 bpm
- Average heart rate: 173 bpm
No stars tonight because I kept to the main roads and they are all light up. Didn’t swallow any moths so that’s definitely a win. My husband asked me what was the best thing about my slow run and I think it would have to be the different smells I smelt. Pretty weird, but as I run past each house I can smell what they had for dinner. I can smell the flowers from people’s gardens and unfortunately…their rubbish as well. The bins are out for collection tomorrow. Just focus on the good smells like the food and flowers.
Leave a comment and let me know the best things about your runs.
Happy running – Melissa
