This week saw my longest run yet: a scheduled 16km (10 mile) run on Sunday. (RunKeeper details) I headed to Centennial Park as usual and managed 2.5 laps around. I did 2:1 run/walk ratio the whole way, and it was fantastic. I felt much better than I did the previous week (where I did 3:1 for 13km). My legs didn’t cramp and my overall average was actually faster! I was having some stomach pain though, and somehow I managed to lose one of my water belt bottles. Still, I got it done. This week is a cutback week, which I’ve been looking forward to.
Mar. 27: 5.34km
Mar. 28: 16.72km
Mar. 31: 5.35km
Total this week: 27.41km (17mi)
Total in 2010: 264.32km (165mi)
We are officially one-quarter of the way through the year, which means I should be at 250km to meet my 1000km goal. Looks like I’m about 14km ahead of pace. Woooo!
