12 Mile walk, 11 Mile run
I completed a 12.5 mile walk on Saturday in a little over 3 hours. I walked at a pace of 3.8 mph with a fairly light backpack. This was my first walk in a few weeks after ther holiday, and I felt very comfortable. Few niggles with my shoes, but I think I have got that sorted.
The day after I did an 11 mile run at easy pace. It took me 1 hour and 56 minutes, exactly to training plan schedule. This approximates to 10:30 minute miles, or 5.7mph. The map above shows this route and elevation profile.
Enjoyed this run, and found it no problem whatsoever. My only muscle soreness on Monday was from the Gym on the Friday. I'm doing a whole circuit of new exercises, so I was feeling a little tender in places!
