training run #812

14C, sunny, warm, another 7 miles. Virtually identical run to yesterday with conditions and stats. The difference is I hardly noticed left hamstring on the first lap. Towards the end of the lap I sprinted for 250 metres to blast past another runner. Legs felt great for that but the slight niggle returned on and off. Lesson learned, keep the pace easy and let it heal. Drank 500ml water. Think the hamstring is a long lasting consequence of the afternoon gardening/weeding a few weeks ago.

Distance: 11.47km
Time: 1:06:33
Avg HR: 144bpm (the sprint raised it a bit)
Avg pace: 5:48 min/km
Calories: 905
