Tracey, good long run there. I remember you weren't looking forward to a long run so hope you enjoyed it.
JJ, don't give up consecutive days for ever, just see how it goes.
Lovely winter's day here today. I wish there were more like them. Very cold, only just above freezing, but sunny and fairly still too. I did a 10.4 mile run on a country lane route I use once or twice a year. Plenty of icy bits on the roads but usually easily avoidable. My legs felt a bit tired throughout but didn't get worse. Average pace 8:42 and didn't want to go faster than that. 35 miles for the week, which is a bit more like it.
Diana, that sort of pace for a 10K should be within your reach if you've just done around 8:15 over 4 miles. I know you do quite a few longer runs for the stamina. Good luck, and don't forget to smile again for the camera!
