First long run for two weeks or so. Felt a lot better than previous long runs. Right knee is still a potential problem, it twinges as soon as I hit a small hill and need to drive hard with thigh muscles to get up the hill. Not at all sure what I should do about it. Hoping that I will get some strength back after being ill, and it will sort itself out.
Pretty happy to get the long run done - Wherever I read about training and preparation for a half or full marathon, they say 'distance is king' so I really need to get these long runs done over the shorter ones - and the the speed runs.
The pace I did is quite good. If I can manage around 10.5km/h it will get me across the finish line in just under 2 hours. So I will have to get a little quicker over the long distance to be able to achieve a 100 minute half marathon.
