Progression Run on the Hills

Temperatures were around 30 degrees cooler today than yesterday's temps in the lower 90s. Not only did this feel great, but it also made a big difference in the heart rate. Today's run was longer, faster, and much hillier, yet the average heart rate was eight beats less per minute compared to yesterday.

I felt a little creaky at the beginning of the run, but I loosened up during the first big climb and the pace picked up pretty easily. Easy to maintain the progression on the latter part of the run which was pretty much all downhill. Good run.

Ran 7.1 miles @ 7:31/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 150/167
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Lower 60s, sunny.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.
