Juneathon 2/30 – Southbank Coronary

Screen shot 2010 06 02 at 22.43.33 300x291 Juneathon 2/30   Southbank CoronaryIt has to be said that the inaccurately named Non-runner is proving to be quite a good runner. Over the course of the last 5 runs she seems to have developed some lung capacity and the new Audiofuel playlist has played havoc with her pace.

Today I loaded her up with my rucksac which must have weighed at least a stone and refused to let her listen to music. She still set a blistering pace apparently counting the 1,2,3,4 rhythm like the man from Audiofuel.

I struggled and in fact failed to keep up but still managed to knock a whole minute off my current km pace. This is no good thing. In order to achieve this feat I had to push my heart rate up to a max of 212 bpm which is quite an unsavory thing to do in the middle of a tourist laden mecca. It’s a miracle I didn’t collapse over the Thames.

Here’s a chart of our heart rates overlaid (courtesy of runsaturday), I’m the dramatic brown one vs the rather stable blue from the Non Runner.

I need to pack a bigger rucksac for next time.

    I like your attempts to slow her down! Are you doing the Crisis Square Mile? It covers some of that area…

    I tried keeping her talking on day 3 but it only worked for about 400m.
    It’s no to crisis mile – are you doing it?

    I am, did it last year and thought it was bonkers, so I’m doing it again.
