Run 51:00  8.9 km (5:44 / km)
A bit of an odd run today: on the one hand, I was handling it well from a fitness sense, not overly troubled by hills (the sub-5.30 kilometres are starting to become a bit more regular too), but on the other hand, various parts of the body were making their presence felt with the back, quad and hamstring all suspect at different points. I'd hoped to get out to 70 minutes but felt enough signs of trouble to settle for 50, but would still have taken this run a few weeks ago. Hillier than most of my recent runs, taking in sections of Ivanhoe (and finishing off the area between the Boulevard and Lower Heidelberg Road).
Coldest May morning in Melbourne (1.7) since 1949. Frosty mornings usually make for nice running conditions and this was no exception.
I don't plan to run tomorrow, but today made it my longest running month for more than three years, since April 2018. What happens next month may depend a bit on where I am next month, which is still very much uncertain. Definitely feeling the improvement as the training volume steps up and becomes more consistent. Although it's still a fair way above where I would want it to be, my weight seems to be dropping a kilo a month or so over this period too.
