Ok I feel happier now...I will definitely try and be a little slower though - I can clearly see what parts of the route made me speed up.

2 more things all: What does LSR stand for?

And how long is a Long run in your eyes? I thought it was above 10miles...this one today is the longest I have ever attempted and it felt fairly comfortable, so I wasn't sure really...

Oh yes Gobi, us little newbies still have far to go, much to learn... :-)

I find it's hard to run slowly when you want to get home and relax, or you've got something to do that's on your mind, or its freezing, or..... list could go on! I think I just need to run more to get the right pace. Not too slow not too fast...

I did my first proper slow run the other day and I loved it!

I had to do it as it was my husband's first run since hurting his back 2 months ago, so this made me go slow.

I felt like I could have run for hours, really. And it's the first time I've felt in control of my speed.

It gave me confidence about stamina as much as anything.
