29km Long Run

Distance:29.01 km
Avg Pace:4:30 min/km
Elevation Gain:292 m

Half the mountains are on fire up here at the moment with hazard reductions. Smoke everywhere, but didn't make too much of a difference. Wanted to do 16km @ marathon pace, but hard to get an even pace with the hills. Ended up being tired towards the end. Someone took a water bottle I dropped last night so I didn't have water between 10 and 25km. Had one gel at 12km, but couldn't wash it down. 

Some discomfort on the top of the left foot, could be caused by shoe. Had to stop and re lace but was still sore.

Weekly Total:

Running: 75.23km (6:00:44)

Dropped an 18k run from the weeks training because I've just been so tired from being in the hospital. Funnily enough todays long run was the quickest all week.

Monthly Total:

Running: 309.05km (25:27:13)
Cycling: 16km (38:26)

Third biggest volume month of the year surprisingly. Need to keep my shit together. Of course I'm probably doing too much too soon. Wonder how long it will last.
