8k (5 mile) Pace Run in Lucan...

It has been a while since I've done a pace run outside, but it was a gorgeous day: 8 degrees C. and sunny, with no wind. So I ran from the office down to Clarke's Variety, and then up Saintsbury, retracing my route after going 4K. Here are my splits:


Overall, my pace was 4:54 per kilometre which, if I kept up that pace for a full marathon, would put me across in 3:26:47. I just went out easy for the first kilometre, so if you take the pace for my last 7K, it would work out to a 3:25:30 marathon, which is faster than my 2010 Road2Hope personal best of 3:25:41.

It was a reasonably tough run since I'd done a hard tempo run less than 24 hours prior. But it felt good to get it in the books!
