10K, workout #7

After yesterday's tempo workout, today's planning includes a long run.

The workout

A steady run of 15km in heart rate zone 2, pace around 5:00/8:00.


I felt tired, and a bit rushed, because I was planning on swimming in the evening and I was running late. Unfortunately, I didn't really enjoy the run, but pace was steady, my heart rate pretty low and, well, sometimes mileage is just mileage.

In the evening I swam 2km to try out a wetsuit I had borrowed from my wife's colleague. The swimming was really, really nice, as my first open water swimming experience was without a wetsuit and it was way too cold. Doing a run while somewhat tired and going for a long(er) swim was too much for a working day, but I did feel refreshed and less tired after the swim.
