About individual runs

On Monday (02/03): Difficulty in adjusting cadence at low speeds (pace higher than 5:15 min/km) which is pretty normal. HT

On Tuesday (03/03): Very poor signal.

On Wednesday (04/03): Decreased pace by 0:06 min/km (compared to last workout) and had much more flexibility in adjusting cadence, however still need more concentration to run exactly around 180 spm. No issue in the run. HT

On Thursday (05/03): Good run, no issue!

On Saturday (07/03): The most difficult part was to navigate the trail while running and thanks for Garmin compass who helped me find the trail in Stanley park up to lions gate bridge. After that it was a bit tricky to find the initial point of the trail along the capilano river. Thus I was forced to walk from that point up to the grouse grind cause there were a couple of two ways in the trail and you had to find the right path on the map.
