      Back home and into the heat (32o C) with a 30′ recovery run to kick the pain out of the legs and feet. Even some faster strides -just to test how I was feeling. All OK (naturally paining everywhere though) and feeling better with every step, so thumbs up on this one…

    • Don’t think I’d of been brave enough to add strides but great all feels relatively good after the HM. Must mean your in fine shape. Well done

    • Lovely stuff Vangelis

    • Nice recovery almost as hot as it is here in the UK 🙂

    • Good to hear that the legs were responding as you might hope to a recovery run, despite the heat … as Handbrake says, the heat is building here at the moment. Predicting 37 degrees in London on Thursday – I’m not looking forward to that!

      RAS W5-R1 – steady 10 in Z2 – hmm well I got my wrist slapped a lot in that one – first 4 miles I had a gentle breeze and was mostly successful at keeping in z2 and the hr wasn’t disastrous but after that I strayed into the very bottom of zone 3 at least twice every mile – putting pace for heartrate down to the temperature today, and it could have…[Read more]

    • It’s a proper balancing act when you have to be somewhere else. Looks like a successful one anyway Sharnie

    • The poor old sun is getting the blame from everyone at present. Pretty good going though, could of been lots more Z3 in there. Good miles you put in here and a good time for Z2 pootling. Well done Mrs S xx

    • Think you did well to stay in zone 2 as much as you did in that heat! Fab weekday miles and not surprised you were tempted by the river at the end 🙂 🙂

    • Great tenner and despite the slapping you still managed to keep the z3 rather calm and not too much complaining! Not so easy in this weather and no doubt the river must have looked appealing…

    • Well done Sharnie, I can imagine the river was very tempting.

    • that’s a great 10 and I’m sure HR is raised due to heat, guess higher HR is an attempt by the body to keep the core temperature down

    • Tricking trying to balance the ‘rules’ of HR training and the time available, but seems you did as good a job as you could today … though the regular bleeping in protest from Garmin can be irritating! 😉 I bet that river was really beckoning after 10M – especially as this was a middle-of-the-day run

    • Oh yes a dip in the river at the end would have been a great idea 😄 a fine pootle Sharnie can imagine it was a tad sweaty😄

  • Great account of your trail adventure Vangelis – lots of memories I should think – and very evocative photos.  Well done on staying upright amongs all those knobbly and steep sections.  Excellent improvement on your previous time as well.
