Oh the pain. Long time since I have done any distance and this absolutely killed me. Was down to 7 minute per km buy the end and shuffled through some very, very heavy legs. Started with quite a tight left hamstring. Got a blister on the side of my right foot around 8km which was reasonably painful. Just glad I got the work over and done with. No nutrition during run which I feel makes a difference. Not sure if training without food helps or hinders.

Recovery: Trying out contrast baths - 5min in cold water, 5 min in hot shower X 3. Lots of carbs.
