Sunday in the sun

On Sunday, I planned to go for a long out and back on a cycle track to try and hit 10 miles. I have a half marathon plan on my Garmin Forerunner 220 and planned to use the session for a long run to go further than the plan suggested. As I started, it became apparent that the heart rate for the session was far lower than my comfortable rate so the watch kept warning me. This became annoying so I stopped the session and started again. And carried on. Found a comfortable rate at a decent speed. Kept my eye on the distance but the lap count was out. I got the wrong end of the stick and thought I made the turn at 8km. Turns out it was far less. Ultimately this was a blessing in disguise as I really struggled towards the end due to the temperature. Have to be happy with 12km on a very warm day at a nice pace.
