It was raining, as I stepped outside this morning. Not the bad icy rain I had gotten used to over the winter, but the nice and lovely spring rain. The one that cools one just enough to make running awesome. I knew the tide was high and so the logic dictated that I switch off my brain and do some park running.
Thanks to Kristian I got the idea to work on improving my cadence – slowrunner style! What’s that you ask? Well it means trying to run with a higher cadence, while still keeping the heart rate low. I used Spotify’s “running” feature to help me and set the music to play at 170 bpm. Now I am glad to report that there is a lot of room for improvement in this area!
Other than that I truly enjoyed today’s 40 minutes @146 heart rate (2 beats to high, but well … there will be more slow runs).
