80 minute runner!

I set off for my first run since the 10k tonight with the intention of doing a slow (155bpm or less) run around the block. Felt alright for the first 40 mins or so and was keeping HR in check so decided to keep going for the hour. The pace was quite slow, but my HR was usually in the 155bpm - 160bpm range which felt relatively easy (though had one or two tough patches).

To sum up, I done 80 minutes in total covering around 10.7km. Nowhere near a fast pace, considering I was about 14 mins fast at the 10km mark last week. Still, my average HR was much lower and its good to get the miles into the legs after doing absolutely nothing over the last week.
