This is the longest run thus far in this Winter's training session. I did my normal 4 mile "Boston Breakfast Club" run before meeting the rest of the group at Goodlife. Blair, Gord and I ran together. Then we went out for an 18 mile run. Here is the route:
The roads were better than previous long runs, but still mostly snow-covered, which made for tough running. Still, when possible and safe, we'd get onto some of the bare roads.
Despite the less-than-optimal road conditions, I managed an average pace of 5:31 per kilometre which I'm quite happy with. And at the end of the run, I still had energy to pick up the pace a bit.
