Good day out. 3 x 7k loops. Told myself that this was just another long run - not a race, but the competetive urge took over and pushed myself. Got mis-directed and added an extra 400m (2mins - because I had to ask somehow what was going on), but anyway - my fault.

Overall I'm fairly happy considering that I've only been training properly for the last few weeks. I felt nice and strong during the second half and posted a 4:12k in one of the last km's. Felt like my form was decent and held despite the high HR. I think it gives me a good idea of where I'm at fairly early in the year and what I can build on. Just need to keep building the volume for the next few months.
