I don't really have a target if I'm honest as my training was massively (self) interupted by a boozy wedding trip to Thailand for most of August.
What I've been telling people though is I'll be disappointed if it's over four hours and pleased if it's under 3:30. I've completed a 22 miler in 2:55 a few weeks back so I'll see how I feel on the day but I'll probably set off at 7:45m/m ish pace and see how I get on.
Seven miles completed in the lashing rain last night with 5 miles @6:45 felt really good and can't wait until Sunday week. Going to take it nice and steady from here. My plan has a 2 mile run on Monday and Thursday, I'll be like a coiled spring on those!! 2 miles?!
Having seen in the race instructions last week that headphones were not allowed in the event I decided to go for my first run in six years without an iPod last night.
While I barely noticed not having music I rather ironically had my first ever collison with another person in my six years of running! I clashed with a cyclist and while it was on ones fault (well apart from the cyclist, why can't they just use the road?) we did that I go left they go right, I go right they go left thing until we collided! Now this would have happened if I had been wearing my headphones but I must admit to have a long chuckle about it after it happened.
Anyway I'm much happier now that I won't miss the music having finished that run last night all be it over seven miles as opposed to twenty six.
