My average heart rate was 172 with the max at 182. The route was exactly 3km according to Google Maps, I guess I didn't hit "start" properly on runtastic so I didn't get my pace info or the exact distance based on that program. The time to complete was 26:35 so it looks like my speed is improving a bit already. I was surprised at the time to complete actually considering the temperature and humidity.
I still need to plot out my course for today but I think I will wait and go in the evening when it's a bit cooler out (I hope). The training schedule calls for 7km today. While I want to stay in the shade for this, I am not too sure about where I can go for that, maybe I can do the back half of the lake front train in Hamilton. We were fishing for a little while yesterday at a park on Northshore and it was gorgeous with the breeze off the lake which would help a lot in keeping my temp down.
***I am going to make my mango black bean salad for lunch this week and I think I will make it with some coconut quinoa. For dinner tonight I am trying a new recipe for Grilled Ginger Peanut Pork Tenderloin. It is similar to a dish we ate while on vacation in Europe. We went two days in a row because it was that good so I thought about recreating it. I think I will make a broccoli coleslaw to serve with the pork, I just can't bring myself to prepare a hot side dish right now with it being summer time.
Time to plot my course for later today then head to fortinos and get on with the day. I have to say having the long weekend has been excellent, wish every weekend in the summer was a long weekend!
