1 hour runner

Woohoo. Set off for a normal run around the block tonight, aiming to keep HR under 160bpm. I find it tough to keep my HR that low, so pace was pretty slow. The upside was that I did find it a lot easier to keep going. Twenty minutes in and I was still relatively fresh, so decided to aim for a 40 minute continuous run.

Got to the 5km mark at 35m 20s or so but still felt relatively ok. Decided to go for the hour when I reached the 40 minute mark. For the last two km or so, I found it pretty tough to keep the HR in check, but made it to the hour mark in the end.
