Attacked By Damn Magpies

So I was having the best run of this Run Challenge, going along at a great pace, feeling easy, running in an area near my house that I’d never been through, when a couple of Magpies decided I was a danger to their nest and attacked.

If you’ve ever been attacked by magpies, you know it’s not the most comfortable feeling. They attacked a dozen or so times. I didn’t increase my pace, but after I was out of what they considered to be their area my heart rate was at 170 bpm!

Thankfully it didn’t take too long to relax enough to get my heart rate back down, but it stuffed up what I’m sure would have been my best run yet.

Ended up running 4.13 km in the 30 minutes at an average pace of 7:16 mins/km and average heart rate of 150 bpm.
