A slightly speedier long run

A gorgeous sunny day today in Auckland. A good morning for tackling the 18.8km Long Run to the Domain from last week.

A bit speedier today...pleased with the progress.

Today: 18.80km in 1:29:39 for a average pace of 4:46min/km.
(Last week I did the same course in 1:33:18).

The effort level was a touch higher today but tried to keep the pace consistent over the whole distance.

I didn't see any rubber ducks although at around the 6km mark the path passes by a small lake with a few friendly geese...

Felt great afterwards!

It was a great morning to be out training ... thanks for the comments on my blog ... I 'play' with the scientific approach to training. It keeps me interested and motivates me to get out there to generate data :)

Good increase in speed this morning for you ... keep up the good work! :)

It was a glorious day for a run wasn't it? I saw plenty of the rubber ducks out Mission Bay way. The adirun folks have been sticking them on the footpaths.
