16km Base Run

Avg Pace: 5:15min/km

Ran in the Adidas in reasonably heavy rain. Ran about 2km trying to avoid major puddles before going into ankle deep water. Surprisingly this didn't cause any blistering issues.

Probably a bit fast for the given program, but I felt pretty solid so why not. A bit of soreness (as usual) Left calf, right hip flexor. I didn't take the iPhone because of the rain but was able to time myself against a few of the km markers on the Bay and was consistently around 5min/km for at least 5k.

Happy with this weeks training - first week of "Brain Training" I skipped yesterdays base pace run, but hit everything else. Looking forward to a spa and sauna tonight to aid recovery.

Logged 40km for the week which is a step up from the previous two weeks.
