As usual, Monday is an easy day. I normally just trot along the trail from work to home for lunch, then amble back about an hour later. Nothing special, nothing fast, just as it happens.
A really nice winter's day, cold again this morning, almost to mild in early afternoon.
On a suggestion, I stopped to take my heart rate on the way home and again on my way back to work.
I wasn't going very fast at any stage. First HR taken was 83 bpm then on the way back after a short down hill on Woodcock Dr, rate was 98 bpm. I guess that's fairly low, but I wasn't pushing out any pace, and normally don't anyway.
I suppose a small diesel engine just chugging away without a turbo.
Stopped at Pine Is on my way back to brave the cold waters of the Murrumbidgee River. Felt like almost freezing, but it's not. Temp without measuring would be around 12-14 degrees. Cold enough to be painful after 30 seconds, so I opted for the 30 seconds in, one minute out. Did that 4 times. My right calf after the cramps and knots from yesterday is still tender to touch, not sore when running, but I need to be careful.
