I've been in Helsinki for work this week and have not been able to run so far because it has been raining heavily each evening, however today has been better. I booked a hotel near the harbour so I could go for a nice run and I am very pleased that I did, it is very nice to go for a leisurely jog near the sea. I ran along until I reached just over 2.5km and then turned around to run back to the hotel. I managed to run the 5km in 28'23", below are my splits:
1km - 5'32"
2km - 5'52"
3km - 5'34"
4km - 5'47"
5km - 5'39"
This was also the first time I have gone for a run without a podcast to listen to, I normally listen to football, politics or economics podcasts but I didn't this time because I wanted to enjoy the scenery. On another note I found it very hard to look the right way when having to cross a road, Europeans should stop driving on the wrong side of the road!
Anyway here is a link to my run:
