Today was quite unspectacular. It was neither a bad run nor a particularly good one.
I had no plan and went down the beach. I had the bright idea to test different surfaces and check my pace for each at my 144 heart rate.
Including the stairs of hell:
I was pleased to see my soft sand pace is now 9 minutes/km and it is one minute faster on pavement.
I even have to start running up smaller inclines I used to have to walk to keep my low heart rate.
I noticed it got a bit harder to keep the heart rate up at least while on the beach/street.
I also did the ice cold sea bath for my feet/ankles and calves afterwards which is such a treat!
