Running Program – 2.4km assessment

At the start of the running program we did a 2.4km test, here is my post on that. Now, at the end of the program we redo that test. So lets compare results:

Before:

time – 17.24min, max HR – 182, ave HR – 171, HR at end – 180, HR a minute later – 155, difference = 25

After:

time – 15.45min, max HR – 201, ave HR – 184, HR at end – 200, HR a minute later – 174, difference = 26

WOW- not what I expected at all! Ok – i expected the time to come down, as this time I didn’t walk at all – but I was hoping for more of a difference. I also expected my heart rate to come down, not go up… I can honestly say that I did my best on both attempts.. so maybe my perceived effort is now much higher.

I guess this goes to show that running 10km wasn’t about being "fit" enough to run it – it was about believing you are capable of running all 10km!
