Going strapless

I forgot my heart strap this weekend, but did have the GPS watch, so I decided why not "test" my form. The route was the 8.5 mile loop from my in-laws house in Shelton, CT. The notable feature of the course is the climb up Long Hill Ave. It's about a mile and a quarter long and gets pretty steep near the end, climbing about 400ft vertical. The whole run features about 1000ft vertical.

I set a personal best on the loop today with a 56:26, ~ a 6:38/mile average pace. I ran the final two miles below 6:00/mile.

I'll take it.
