Road Running (Back Home) 34:02  8.31 km (4:06 / km)
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11 AW11
From Pearson NE Entrance, via City University (N side), Hackney Road. Run without bag, carrying phone in hand. Pushed hard all the way. Got a stitch at 3.25km (maybe due to clenching phone?) that only cleared up after about 6km. Not too cool, but very gently raining for latter half of run. Took racing line around most of the bends, a bit dodgy on some of the bigger roads!
Pleased with time, especially as I think I can still improve slightly (to 33:00), although the distraction of a stitch didn't seem to slow me down. Slightly uncomfortable with pace in a couple of places but no great pain. By comparison, running with bag is generally around 40:00, for an admittedly slightly longer outer. I'm aiming for a 90 min H/M in a couple of months (i.e. 4:15/km) so I need to be completely comfortable with this pace soon.
R knee aching slightly after run, and legs felt a bit rubbery when I stopped running. Will stretch.
KM splits (based on 8.57km GPS distance) 3:57, 3:56, 4:07, 3:52, 4:01, 4:01, 4:04, 3:59, (3:48). My logged distance is based on BRT instead.
