Back Running In The Welsh Rain

I'm back home and back to my training. How different is this to the Cyprus session!

Back with a run in the cold and wet, an enjoyable run but a cold one.

After a long flight last night I decided to take it easy on the session, It was the normal route and just 6 miles, so nothing massive.

I was only averaging a 8 minute mile pace which is fine for my first run back home, and it was going to be a loosener run. It was nice to get back and feel the cold air on my lungs and feel the rain in my face.

I need to start changing the 6 mile runs to 8 miles, but I also need to stop doing so much running and do more swimming and cycling.

I managed to get an average of 156 BPM for the session which is what I planned for, and a max heart rate of 174 BPM which was higher than I planned, but it was in the last mile which is all up hill.

Weather dependant I hope to get out on the bike tomorrow otherwise its a swim.
