Distance Duration Avg. Pace Avg. Speed

This run started as a mediocre run, but had a surprise ending.

5 km: Not tired, but not very energetic either. Mediocre.
10 km: Well, still the same. Not tired and not energetic.
11 km: Knee starts to have some feelings. Inconvenient, but not too bad.
17 km: Still going steady. Have to be careful with the knee.

20 km: Oh no, somehow I misinterpreted kilometers and thought last one was, well, the last one. How can the last kilometer feel so heavy? Must be mental, and eventually last kilometer turns this to be quite a tough run.

Weather and my stomach were really against my run, but nevertheless speed was OK. I maintained pleasing speed all the way.

Knee is better and I tried to speed up. Well, speed was only about a minute better, but I got way more tired than last time.

Wow! This is the first long rung after the last marathon almost two months ago! Knee is still aching, but it’s not a show stopper anymore. Easy run but pretty decent average.
