34km Long Run

Distance:34.01 km
Avg Pace:4:45 min/km
Elevation Gain:290 m

Planned so I'd have to do the last 4k uphill (also meant first 4 were downhill). Gels at 5, 15 and 25km. Sweat a lot and felt very thirsty. Only drank every 5km. Its been a rushed preparation for Melbourne (still haven't actually registered -  but accomodation is booked), but have had an ok block over the last ten weeks with two more to go. Much more consistent than the lead up to Sydney in 2011, with longer, faster long runs each week. however, its been missing the long tempo runs and intervals.

Weekly Totals:

Running: 92.27km (7:26:09)

Biggest week of training in a while. Taper and peak now.

Monthly Totals:

Running: 325.43km (26:38:21)

Second biggest month of the year.
