Only 6 miles this morning but with a faster parkrun in the middle. Unbelievably this is the first time I have run faster at my own event in the 4 1/4 years since it started. A 40 second PB from May, so it shows how far even just a little bit of speed work goes. On a flat course I would have squeezed into the 20s for sure.
Shame in some ways that the longer miles are starting again so shorter pace will suffer, but I will try to keep a little pacier work going over the next year. Quite happy with the run considering the breathing was only slightly laboured [so not cardiovascular limiting factor] but the legs were heavy.
