Oh about that physical exam; bpm rest: 50, bpm normal: 62

Other comments: Foretrex 401 at start showed a 2mtr satellite lock-wow! that probably is the shortest I have seen since the 201’s usual 15-30mtr. lock which explains for the shorter distances and faster speeds and more accurate no spike jumps. Overall feeling of elation just because I did my birthday run as planned. As for why I don’t do it farther I never liked running except for the reason’s answered above.
