28km Long Run

Distance:28.01 km
Avg Pace:4:56 min/km
Elevation Gain:510 m
Hilly long run. Realised my legs were pretty dead at 15km. Realised they were completely dead at 26km. Pushed a bit further than I have in quite some time. Left hip flexor tightened up badly at around 26k too. Tough but good run. I also realised how far away and difficult is going to be to get a 3hr marathon.

Weekly Totals:

Running: 89.09km (7:24:07)
Cycling: 13km (33:22)

March Totals:

Running: 382.39km (32:48:13) (5347m elevation gain)
Cycling: (13km) (33:22)

Most volume I've done in a month since I started running. The next biggest was 362km in October 2011, when I suddenly got injured and hardly ran for 2 months after. This month I also did about another 1000m of hills. Have had 8 weeks now of what I would consider a base training phase. Mostly easy running with just a few harder efforts. Now I need to keep this consistency going.
