I got up today and headed out to do 8km. I am still testing out the short shorts.....today they seemed much better.
I felt good and was happy with my pace that I had picked. I was not pushing hard but still seemed to be around the 6min / km pace. Either this watch measures short or my old watch measured long....but I seem to be much faster with less effort.
I am finding that more and more people recognise me now and it is really nice to get the nods from people and the hellos that are called out. I was not breathing hard and am finally feeling that I am back to my fitness I had before leaving NZ. Now to build on that. Its a bit hard with the hours I work as I really dont like getting up so early but that is a small thing to be whingy about.
Todays walk was 8km in 48:06 with an avg heart rate of 148
