Yesterday’s 10mile run went well, in the circumstances. 1h23m, so slower than last year, but given the drop off in training and being under the weather at the start of the week, I wasn’t expecting a PB. The run was lovely, albeit a bit windy up on top of the hills. The organisers and marshalls were brilliant. I think the winner got around in about 53minutes, which can’t be far off a course record. I’ll definitely be signing up again for next year, and if anyone wants an event at that time of year then I can recommend it for those who find themselves between say North London and Cambridge over Christmas.
For this year, I’ve got the Big Half in March, Hackney Half in May and Ealing Half in September, plus the Blenheim Triathlon in June. I’d like to keep things ticking over at about 30km a week, if I can, which is running home twice a week and a recovery run after hockey on a Sunday.
