The one with the flak jacket

No I was not wearing a flak on the run this morning, but it was too great an oppurtunity to pass up on , as I turned the corner to run up el barstido hill, I spotted an uplink truck with a guy wearing his flak jacket jabbering excitedly , so naturally I ran behind him and carried on up the hill . Would of made great TV ... Hero War Correspondent standing on the frontline and a jogger in a singlet runs past behind him ....
No Jeff this morning the artillery firing kept him awake most of the night , so solo run today and another PB 19:13

The stats are sketchy as my watch suddenly read full memory

So here is what I can gather

Distance .... what else 3.7 km
Time 19:13
Hr av 137
HR max 167
Kcal 253
Temp 27 C
Speed av 11.3
Speed max 15.8
Pace average 5:18
Pace max 3:57

My hubby is in Iraq right now and he loves the days he can run without his flak. Good luck to you.

What kind of watch do you use? Is there a chest strap?

Mal said...

Polar 625X awesome watch without doubt the best training tool I have ever used

Mal said...

Sorry Terry it has a chest strap and a foot pod which transmits the pace speed distance altitude and then the chest strap has the heart rate covered

Mal, do you think you can get a flak vest imprinted with the Phedippidations WWHM logo on it?
Seriously, I sure hope that things cool down up there soon and that you are out of the line of fire. Hope to join you for a long run in September.
