Well 3rd 10k completed this morning in 1 hour 7mins 09 secs, all splits under 7min per km,  final km in 6 min 28... 

Liking the longer runs , yeah would like to faster but for now consistency is my middle name :) 

Next step is going to be 12k after a cut back recovery week , still having to occasionally pinch myself at running the distance and duration :)
