All the best to those marathon runners today. 18 multi terrain miles for me. 1,350ft of climb. The last 3 miles at MP were tough but not uncomfortable. Legs are aching now! Ran along the canal, off road and up over the hills before dropping down through some fields to nearby Tiverton. From there I ran along the Exe Valley Way following the river bank to picturesque Bickleigh. Up over the toughest hill I think I've ever found to Butterleigh and across some undulating terrain back home. Watching the London runners now with Arsenal v Chelses to look forward to!
Glad you got some official advice Janey. You look very similar to Mrs JR at the moment although she has actually taken her tape off today so fingers crossed she's on the mend as I am really getting on her nerves with all my running. I feel her pain as I know what it's like to sit and watch others run, it's no fun!
8 miles done tonight with a 3 mile tempo run in the middle @ 8:25 pace. Bright sun when I left, dark when I finished. Rest day tomorrow.
3 miles easy tonight plus 3 strides. A little quicker than the planned pace but ran to effort. 8 miles tomorrow with a 3 mile tempo run in the middle. It's too much to do in the morning so another evening run. Lovely weather here, weekend looks like cooling down though.
