17 miles, down from the altitude. Average pace 6:46/ avg HR 151 which is bull shit. It took the Garmin over a mile before it 'settled' down and it read 180+ for close to 10:00. Then midway I decided to take it off and run by feel... with the strap around my ass it read 200-220. So, my Garmin can quite accurately receive a signal from SPACE... but not from my chest strap which is 6" away? But at least I know my Ass Rate or "AR" in the scientific community. I would say for sure average HR was closer to 145. I capped it at 150 on the way out then let it slip to 155 on the way back. This felt nice and relaxed which is good.
I had hoped to get a sense of goal pace for next weekend's 50 mile race... I am pinpointing it somewhere between 7:00 and 8:30 pace. So, no clue. One online calculator says I can run 6:47 pace for 50 miles, doubt I'll be trying that.
