In from the run! Very pleased to bag the 14 miles, a progression from 12 last week.. My longest run to date. I previously did 14.01 at the start of May .. Today I ran a little quicker though ..
Followed most of the Marafun Southampton HM route although got a little lost by the Uni so ended going up Burgess road twice, which isn't steep just a long incline.. A nice run and some nice parts I have done regular training on and runs into work on which would be if I race this event. Includes some parkrun route too..
So leg felt fine, a few twinges in both heels a few points in the run, around mile 4 and 9 ish then settled and a tiny bit tender now post run but It's a lot better still than I have felt running in other shoes and other days..
14.02m @6:55 1:35:56 time on feet..
Average HR 141 Max 161 so pretty pleased with that given I worked all day and the route...
Miles 11/12/13 I pushed a tad and they were 6:48/6:44/6:41 before finishing on a 6:59
With working long tomorrow plan is to get up reasonably early and run 5m steady (but a little quicker) and back to cycle to and from work...
Originally I thought about cutting back but looking at the mileage I feel I can still build. Will listen to how I feel though
