....another version of "My Avatar" stretch....definitely a 'positive' split!
Program : Medium/Long Run. 10 - 12km. Negative split or faster if feeling good.
I wouldn't dare not feel good, so for a negative split there was no option other than to do it!
12 km in 1 hour 40 minutes.
AHR = 109 (74%); MHR = 126 (85%).
6km splits = 52:22; 47:35. Yeah! Negative split = 4:47
The second 6km was one helluva hard slog, driven by the fear of 'not making it'! Diamond Fields Road is also in one helluva mess : rutted like moon craters, rocks & stones awaiting the unwary. This makes the run all the more difficult; slipping, swerving at the last minute to avoid tripping or falling into one of the many 'craters'. Aching legs tonight adhere to the fact that I was literally jumping from post to pillar....almost!
