The "long run"

Today I woke up at 6:20 a.m. without the alarm clock going off, at 6:50 a.m. I went out to do my "long run" of 16 kms with my father and brother( my father was only doing 10k and my brother 25k, but 16k with me) at an easy pace, I felt a bit tired from yesterday's cruise interval workout, so they dropped me early, but I was moving sub 6/km pace, today I looked at my watch at several points, did not have a reason, was by instinct, however, I am used to running by effort, but at the end I have to admit that I didnot want to cross the 90 mins and was competing against the watch, well, the first 5k went in 28:41, then from the 5th to 6.5km I sped up to run with Danilo, the 8k in 45:30(halfway), the 10k in 56:44, the 13k in 73:25 and the 16k in 1:28:45, so the last 3k were in 15:20, I have to admit that in the last mile or so I pushed the pace a bit and in the last 400s, when I saw 1:27:21, I accelerated to not cross the 89 mins mark, Oh well, watch glancing! not a great idea when you are running easy. I felt very good but a bit tired at the end. The weather was good but very sunny in the second half. Did the first half in 45.30 and the second half in 43.15.

16 kms total, 1:28:45(45:30, 43:15)

Runs this week: 6 runs, I have been very consistent and hope to continue that way since I am running in the early morning.

Kilometraje semanal: 73.7 kms or 45.8 miles, I think that this is my highest mileage ever, but I need to do it more times to get used to it and become stronger, so far I am feeling very strong, but I want PR's. Very nice week of training.
