The area around Zwettel (think beer!) presents the runner with wide skies, long horizons, and meditative solitude. Ideal for a long run.
The training pace was gentle and I managed to sustain it for 4 hours (the overall time includes 2 x 10 minute breaks for refreshments - the first after 1 hour and the second after 3 hours).
I arrived back at my starting point feeling comfortable and relaxed.
It was great to know that 4 hours on my feet holds no horrors!
Preparation for September's half-marathon and beyond, with the new training system, is on course.
