16km w/ 8km @ HMP

Distance:16.07 km
Avg Pace:4:46 min/km
Elevation Gain:72 m
Avg HR:158 (85%)
Max HR:173 (94%)
Once again I ran too hard and was more like a LT pace run rather than half marathon pace. Ah well..
Splits; 4:24, 4:23, 4:29, 4:24, 4:23, 4:24, 4:21, 4:29. Happy with that. Avg HR was probably around 89-90% which is a touch high. Wouldn't be doing a half quite at that pace yet. Ran in the hyperspeed so took a bit to get them comfortable. Wore one pair of socks and just moved around a bit - after about an hour started to feel hot spots.
