I heard it raining in the night and it was predicted to continue this morning, but it was okay when I went out. It was feeling cooler though. It was my usual loop of Fairfield, but I decided to do some fartlek sprints to get my legs moving.
I was fairly consistent on GAP (grade adjusted pace) today. I would like to keep it under 5:40/km. Strava gives you so many statistics, so I can see I was a little quicker than average on this route. The Fitness and Freshness graph suggests I am recovering some fitness recenly after losing it. That could be partly down to when I was not running due to hurting my back. A couple of years back I had a much higher score, so need to try and get back up there. It is a battle against age, but I should have a few good years of running in me yet. I need to keep up regular runs through each week without wearing myself out.
Run free and stay well.
