2 x 3km w/3min recovery

Distance:13.08 km
Avg Pace:4:47 min/km
Elevation Gain:32 m

11:34.9 (3:52min/km)
11:47.8 (3:56min/km)

Tough day. Felt pretty flat and tired before even starting. Had hoped to hold 3:50 pace but did not happen. Seemed to be much more humid than the last week. Felt like I was pushing it a touch hard and should allow the drop in pace and think more about the effort. Hopefully the last weeks training is absorbed by the weekend and the legs have freshened a bit. 34 years old today. Probably fitter than I've been before - running wise at least.

Monthly Totals

Running: 316.52km (25:30:17)

Have managed to run and manage the niggles. Last year I only ran above 300k in a month once. So far this year, two consecutive months above 300.
