Slow rising

The sun as well as my heartrate were slowly rising. Averaged 138 for 30 minutes.

I’m happy with how things are developing. With a few super slow runs under my belt I am much more used to slogging and leaving my ego at home. I was never fast to begin with and it will not only develop a solid base, but also improve my discipline and consistency in other areas as well. At least that is what I keep telling myself and it did work so far.

  1. I was wondering about the monitoring of the heartrate and deliberate slow pacing to keep it down. Is it part of a training plan to build a base to slowly upping things due to injury? I admit I have no training plan at all so am intrigued!

    1. It’s not due to injury rather than me trying to prevent it, as well as learning from past mistakes. I’ll write a post relating to this if I get the time as it deserves more space than a comment does. I’m not good on a plan and it’s more about figuring out rough rules to follow.
