    10 miles today/16.2km.

    The perfect run, almost. Bowl of porridge before, reduced bolus, TBR of 30% 2hrs ahead.

    BG started at 9.6, 5km 6.2, 10km 3.8 and 30g carbs, 16km 6.3.

    HR was perfect with an average of 140 vs target 148 5:20/km

    And to boot, it was sunny and warm

    Not much to report on base training for me just now. Just keeping things ticking over @75% HR between a series of four 10k races at present.

    Did a 10k this evening... wore the HR monitor this time... lets just say the HRs work out a bit different when racing 10k's by pace!

    Avg HR 184 (about 92%), Max HR 199 (nearly 100%)

    10k series all done. Decent BGs throughout. 3 PBs. Chuffed!

    Change of pace today with an easy 3 miles. Starting BG 5.7, had 15g carbs and finished on 8.6, HR 151 for 10:04 min/mi.

    Lovely weather here too. :)

    It takes practice, keep trying. Good first attempt.

    Hope you've found the method useful @teacher123.

    I'm getting back into some base training now to prepare for a half marathon in the new year.

    10 miles today @ 9:58 min/mi:
    Avg HR - 155
    Max HR - 168

    Bit of a gradient to negotiate at mile 4 (250ft elevation gain for a mile), had to walk to keep the HR in check.
