Today I did the same route as yesterday, but my training said I needed to run for 40 mins continuous. I was debating which route to go, but opted for the same, just not stopping until I hit 40 mins. So yesterday I did 5.5k in just under 33 mins, and today was 6.8k in 40 mins. The last section was on a gradual incline, which was tough, but I went at it slowly and it levelled off just before the time was up. I was really happy with the result, as I had never run for this amount of time continuously before!
I'm training again tomorrow and the next day, so I didn't want to overdo it.
Oh, and I just signed up for the Blackmore's Sydney half marathon in September...gulp!
