I didn't complete a 100km ultra by my 50th. 80km achieved before 53 years, still working on it...
Tuesday, 8 April 2014
Today's run had to be at least 20 seconds/km slower than usual to follow the advice I'd received. As it was pleasantly dry and not too late I decided to do a trail run rather than a variation of my Dore road route. By keeping a close eye on the GPS pace I managed to do a slow average of 6:37min/km which was close to my goal.
Quite a view in the 'golden hour'
Going a bit slower did feel a little easier but it made the run take a lot longer which in turn gave an impression of a longer run! Nonetheless now I don't feel quite as tired as I often do after a run but I was aware of my knees whilst running. We'll have to see how it works out across the week.
