18km Aerobic Base Run

Distance:18.02 km
Avg Pace:5:02 min/km
Elevation Gain:295 m
Early evening run. Attached the red LED flashing light to the back of the visor and had the hand held torch and off I went. Realised I had forgotten to tape the knee about a km in, but decided to live life on the wild side and just run without it. Knee held up ok, a bit twingey here and there, but mostly fine. Blistered foot seemed ok, bit sore after an hour or so.

Started getting GIT probs at 9km and ran back up the hill with intermittent crampy feelings until I was able to bolt in through the door to the toilet back home at 18k. KFC was obviously a bad idea earlier in the day. Basically having much in the stomach before running isn't great. Have come to like running in the morning with just coffee and a few biscuits. Second week in a row this has happened.

Anyway, got the work done - was supposed to be done yesterday but was absolutely exhausted and just took the day off.
