Enjoyable medium long run this morning

Ran down and met Simon near Burswood before sunrise this morning. As with the run we went on last week, we ran at a pace where we could carry on a conversation but never feel like it was truly easy (well I didn't anyway ... ). Again very enjoyable, lovely morning for running and excellent to have good company to talk to about running and life in general.

All up for me 18.5km in 1 hour 21 mins (4.22/km). Easy day tomorrow with a 8.5km recovery run before I take up Sugar's invitation to join the Hills training group on a run in Darlington on Saturday morning. Am really looking forward to it although I don't know what to expect in relation to the hills. Thankfully it is a relatively short long run this week at only 24km so it should be a nice introduction. Forecast for Saturday is for hot and humid so it will be good to get this one out of the way early. Not sure what I'll do Sunday yet, maybe just 12-13km easy.
