Road Running long 2:37:32  30.6 km (5:09 / km) +30m 5:07 / km
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11 AW11
Reverse of my Island Gardens run two weeks ago - slight variation to go the long way around the park on the western edge of Isle of Dogs.
Did a "Farah" and fell over at 10.8km, although it was my own fault - tripped over my shoelaces. Faceplant onto tarmac, nice bruise on hip, and very bruised and bloody elbows, bet my hip will be aching something awful tomorrow.
Calves were OK this time until about 15km in. Things got pretty painful (again) at about 23km and I eased down from running 5min/km to around 5:30/km. Disappointed to be hurting quite so much again after what is only half way around a marathon. Today was going to be my last long run but I think I can get away with one more next weekend if I recover well from today (will include some stretching this time!)
Another warm and sunny day, with a reasonably strong westerly wind.
Earlier in the day had a look in a shoe shop to see if there were any better shoes around, as I suspect the Brooks are getting a bit worn (309mi says Attackpoint.) Unfortunately the worst time of the year to be buying running shoes - nothing good for under £100.
