I've done 2 runs this week with my new training partner. He rests comfortably on my wrist - I was a little concerned that I would find him bulky and a bit of a nuisance - but my worries were in vain.
I haven't yet used the heartrate monitor - I wanted to get used to the functions on the 'watch' first.
Wed - 5 miles 8.52 pace / 494 calories
Thr - 6 miles 9.38 pace / 581 calories
Wed's run was right on my previous estimation (it was easy to estimate as I drove the route with my car). However, Thr's run was .2 under my estimation. This route is predominately trail and I wasn't able to get a good image using America's Running Routes as much of it is under tree cover.
By the time I got out the door for my run on Thr, the temperature was already above 73 degrees so I was glad I brought water along with me. I felt a little fatigued on the run. I think the heat played a big part. I'm also not certain I've rested from the PPP on Sat - I really pushed myself on Mon during Masters swimming and then two moderate running days Wed & Thr. I'll take today off and then do my long run on Saturday when we go home for the weekend. :)
