Walk 7: Hot and fast(er)

My original thought today was to do my first full loop around Burnaby Lake after The Heel Incident, but as I headed out I began thinking it might be too much too soon and I could have another Heel Incident or some other random part of my body could act up.

So I did my usual 7.5ish walk/run along the river. I might try the lake loop for real on Sunday.

It was warmer but less humid today, so I was faster, which I guess makes sense because humidity bad. I thought on the return back up the trail I wouldn’t be able to run the full length, but it ended up going fairly well and I beat yesterday’s pace by two seconds. My BPM was also down a bit, but the overall numbers are pretty close. I’m just glad I could keep my stamina up when it was starting to approach 30ºC.
