By which I mean I got so fully into run mode that when I hit the 6 km mark (and had two full km of run completed) I automatically stopped the workout, which I did not mean to do, as I still had 1.66 km of walking left (see Part B, below).
That said, this was another good effort and save for a few moments of creakiness right toward the end of the initial running stretch in my lower right back, I felt fine.
Well, I felt a little guilty. Today would normally be a run day, not a run/walk day, but I started rather late than intended, so opted for the combo instead. I can’t say I entirely regret it, as it was still a decent workout.
And it was very humid, showers having occurred earlier in the day. This assured there would be sweating, but no dry mouth. I can live with the trade-off.
My average pace of the combined efforts averages out to 7:38/km, which seems too fast, but is…possible. My running pace was 5:36 and 5:37/km, which is probably my best 1-2 so far this year.
