Back to training.
Yesterday was kind of funny. I woke up at 5am for the track workout, and it's a thick fog outside. At least it wasn't raining! That's actually how I decided it's time to head back to track. So I ran there, warmed up for a couple of more laps, and as I was ready to start - I realized I left the watch at home!! So much for speed...I guess all that free running makes me forget bare essentials. Since I was already there, I decided to go by effort. Honestly, it was quite misearble. I haven't done track since October (I had done some treadmill repeats, but those weren't great either). I did 5 x 800 with 400 rests. Have no idea of time, afarid even to guess. But my heart was jumping out, so I'd say I did. On top of it my chast was doing such a weird wheezing sound, it was lamost scary. Total run lasted an hour. Later at night I did 2 x 3M intervals, and felt much better at it. My HR was pretty steady at 165. Yep, I got myself a HRM, and now just have to find out somehow where is my max, so I can gage my workouts. Any ideas?
