Well, normally after a long run with my garmin I would be able to put a handy little widget on here that allows you all to see my run details. However, I forgot to install some sort of plugin that uploaded the data to garmin connect so that widget isn’t available for this run.
However, I’ve done a screenshot as follows:-
The first few miles were extremely painful and my legs locked up tight. I had to stop and walk a couple of times (only for about 10 secs) to try and relieve the pain. At least it didn’t make much of a difference on my average pace. Even at my slowest, my average pace for any split/lap was under the average pace of 12:29 min/mile that the training plan called for.
Overall average pace of 11:00 min/mile was okay I guess. I mean, I’m happy with it and the run overall (except for first few miles) felt good.
This coming week I’ll need to put more of an emphasis on the cross training on the off/rest days to work on my overall fitness.
Non-running stuff? This blog is doing very well and the “best running blogs” page is still seeing quite a lot of traffic according to my statistics. Also, my adding a proper directory has made things so much easier as people can add their own blogs/sites without me having to go and edit some html code.
PS – In case you’re wondering about the laps/splits above, there are 15 because my garmin still shows me km.
