In cold and icy conditions it was perfect for a nice relaxed cross country run. Approximately 17 miles of pure endurance running at around 70% of maximum heart rate. Average being a low 128 average with a maximum of 147 BPM shows just how easy it was. This being a mid week run before my shortest race of the year at the weekend. Sometimes you just have to train slow to race fast!! The weekend looms large........bring it on.
