A key barrier broken

This afternoon I took a bit of annual leave to take advantage of the pleasant, perhaps rather warm, weather. After a sandwich  I ran an hour loop and convincingly completed it under the hour. This time it was 58 minutes whereas last time I was rather down to the wire.

More excitingly I completed 10km in under 50 minutes. I knew I'd broken the barrier a kilometer or so from home but as the last bit is the fastest that alllowed me to get the PR time down to 49:15. A month or so of intervals and adding some longer runs seems to have allowed me to increase pace without too much trouble. Just as the books say. A plateau must be on its way.
