3 Bali Runs

Bali Archway

This week is a step-back week with reduced mileage. Not easier effort, just fewer miles.

Wednesday’s early morning run was a 10k (6.2 mile) steady pace run through the rain. Actually it only rained for about half the run. The temperature was 78 degrees and the humidity was 94%. Pretty hot and sweaty. Combine that with the dark and slippery conditions and I may have figured out why my times still seem slow. If I was able to run in cooler temperatures during the daylight hours, I might even look fast.  This run was almost a fasted state run, with the exception of a cup of coffee.  My energy was good throughout the whole run. One note; not sure what it means, but my heart rate peaked at 190.

Thursday seemed like a repeat of Wednesday. I woke up to pouring rain. After waiting for an hour or so, the rain let up and I was able to get out the door. Once again I planned a 10k run on the same route as Wednesday. I ran with a little less effort and was 1:30 slower than Wednesday. It felt like an easy run. It was a very dark morning with no traffic.

Friday morning I was able to get up a little earlier and with no rain falling, there was no reason not to run 10 miles. The stars were out to light the way and with my headlamp as backup, I didn’t stumble along. It was still hot and humid, so I had another sweaty run. For this run, I headed out the door with a GU gel and a bottle of Hammer Heed. They seemed to be enough for the 10 miles. I was able to finish before the sun came up and get some more sleep before heading off to work.
