Running long (Road) 1:33:40 [2] 11.63 mi (8:03 / mi)
shoes: Nike Air Pegasus+ 2007

31C, cloudy - Evening run from Ngau Tau Kok over to Hung Hom and back. First long run in months, but it helped that the route was flat. Legs felt fine throughout, but L-ITB is now a little sore. Will have to stretch and get out the foam roller. Maybe I should x-train tomorrow instead of running.

Running hills (Road) 29:11 [4] 3.05 mi (9:34 / mi) +450m 6:34 / mi
shoes: Asics Gel-DS Trainer 13

Climb up Jat's Incline. I set a brisk pace early on, getting to the bottom of Jat's in 9:12. The last third of the climb again was a struggle as I was tiring quickly and breathing heavily. Good thing there's nice cool running natural water at the top to douse my head.

Running (Road) 36:55 [2] 3.55 mi (10:24 / mi)
shoes: Asics Gel-DS Trainer 13

Easy jog back down to the sports ground, chatting with Iris along the way. We saw a snake snacking on a frog for dinner by the roadside.

Running (Road) 38:22 [2] 5.0 mi (7:40 / mi)
shoes: Adidas Supernova Cushion 6

31C, cloudy - Easy recovery run with my HKIOF clubmates. It was an out-n-back from the Kowloon Park swimming pool along the TST harbour front to Hung Hom ferry pier. Ran with a light pack again and sweated profusely. The most interesting part of the run wasn't the laser show or the harbour view, but the dodging of tourists instead!

20:00 out
18:22 back
(Time discounted for long pauses at traffic lights)

Chris brought back some chocolates from Hungary, and it was nice to listen to his WOC experience over dinner.

Running (Pavement) 59:59 [3] 14.04 km (4:16 / km)
shoes: Adidas Supernova Cushion 6

30C, cloudy - TNT at Morse. Glutes were still slightly sore from Sunday, and legs a bit heavy, so I didn't manage to get in 25min of tempo effort in the middle. Like last week, I just ran 12 laps at a steady pace.

Splits (elapsed time):
1. 5:16.82 (5:16.82)
2. 5:20.17 (10:36.99)
3. 5:08.51 (15:45.40)
4. 5:02.34 (20:47.84)
5. 4:58.15 (25:45.99)
6. 4:57.91 (30:43.90)
7. 4:50.29 (35:34.19)
8. 4:52.11 (40:26.30)
9. 4:45.12 (45:11.42)
10. 4:57.48 (50:08.90)
11. 4:52.33 (55:01.23)
12. 4:57.99 (59:59.22)

This was 1:30 faster than last week, but I ran with a small pack then. It's a comfortably hard effort, probably high in the aerobic zone. Too bad I don't have the HR monitor to verify.
hmm... that's a 6:52/mi pace, sort of inbetween zones. I should do a time trial to see where my fitness stands now.
