Mini-taper for Alta Peruvian 8 K. Ran easy 6 miles in the morning by my house on the flat stretch going out and back in 41:38. It was raining. Last 2 miles were 6:50. The heart rate counted for 10 seconds starting 2 seconds after the finish was 114. That is rather low for me. I suppose the rain tends to lower it. However, it is possible to have it much lower. Lasse Viren had it at 84 going 8:00 pace. In any case, I am glad I do not use the 220-age formula to determine the intensity of my workouts, or I'd die.
Had another session with Dr. Jex. For the first time had a proper response to the shared loading on the neck. Afterwards ran with the kids in the canyon. Ran another mile with Abby later in the evening.
Alta Peruvian Lodge 8 K tomorrow.
