5 km / 27 minutes 5 seconds (11.0769231 kilometers per hour). No problems. Settled pretty quickly afterwards.

20 km / 2 hours 19 minutes 20 seconds (8.61244019 kilometers per hour). Breathing was easy all the way. I felt some pain in my ankles at times, but I thing it was psychosomatic, as it happened when I felt desperate about the length of the way ahead. I think the new shoes helped a lot, especially on hard surface like asphalt.
Walking the dogs, streching, one and a half smoothies, a couple glasses of milk with cream, and a few glasses of water. Let's see how I feel tomorrow.
UPDATE: Felt great the next day.
I saved the route on Google Maps.

5 km / 26 minutes 30 seconds (11.3207547 kilometers per hour). Started a bit faster, then pushed through. A proper walk afterwards and stretching a bit later, no pain the next day.

5 km / 28 minutes 45 seconds (10.4347826 kilometers per hour). Felt heavy from beginning to the end. A mild pain in both legs.

5 km / 27 minutes 15 seconds (11.0091743 kilometers per hour). First half was easy, third fourth really heavy. During the last fouth the feeling was similar to the feeling of last kilometers of 9 km last year. It took me longer now to settle after the run - not sure how long, though.
For comparison, my speed for those 9 km runs was 9.81818182 km per hour.

5 km / 31 minutes (9.67741935 kilometers per hour). I was on the edge of not going at all. But I did. Legs weighted a ton for the whole way (I almost tripped over because I didn't lift my feet enough). But breathing was easy and didn't take long to settle afterwards.

5 km / 28 minutes (10.7142857 kilometers per hour). First half was really easy. I felt I could stretch the steps properly. The second half started to feel like before. Only the last kilometer or so breathing was heavier. About 5 minutes to get back to normal.

5 km / 30 minutes (again). First kilometer was easy. I had to remind myself not to plan to run more that 5 kilometers. After the halfway, that feeling was gone and rest of the way felt heavier. After the run, about 5 minutes and I was OK again.

5 km / 30 minutes (again). Felt quite easy for the first four kilometers. I thought I was going faster than last time, but I guess I either got too tired at the end or wasn't really going that fast to begin with. Anyways, legs felt heavy at the end again. Breathing wasn't that hard this time. The same 7 minutes afterwards and breathing was normal.

5 km / 30 minutes. It felt heavy, as I expected, but not as painful as I expected. Breathing was hard. After the first half, I got into a bit better rythm, and the last one fourth was easiest, breathing wise. Legs felt heavy at the end, though. It took about 7 minutes for my breathing to settle after I stopped.
