Week 4 ultra training run

When I started to run in the afternoon it was snowing quite a lot and very large flakes too. All the snow smelted away soon as it was +5C. 

I managed 45.1 km today (28 miles), which is my longest run this year. It took me 5 hours and 2 minutes, averaging 6:42/km. I probably could have ran faster, but I wanted to stay relaxed and enjoy the easy pace, still feeling the effects of yesterday's hill sprints in my legs. My average heart rate was 130.

When I arrived home in the evening it was slightly colder, +3C, and it started to rain lightly. What a great workout!
