6km Aerobic Base Run + Strength

AM:
http://connect.garmin.com/activity/145805120

Distance:6.31 km
Time:32:04
Avg Pace:5:05 min/km

Avg HR: 152 (82%)
Max HR: 166 (90%)

Feeling 99% there now. Was scheduled for a 25min run, but decided to go for around 30mins instead. Trying so very hard to keep some level of restraint so I don't do damage again. First few k felt very easy and was really surprised to see I'd done a 4:55 second k. Looking at the HR graph you can see that the first half is easier than the second despite the quicker times. I assume that this is because its slightly downhill.

Read a good article on consistency as a goal here http://www.runningtechniquetips.com/2012/01/consistency-in-running/ Which ties in to my goals for this year and reinforces the need to hold back more often than not.
