Hope you're patched up SB and not too battered and bruised. Salomon Speedcross are pretty good for not falling down hills. I lived in Edinburgh for a bit and they were forever rescuing people who'd climbed up Arthur's Seat in flip flops or heels.
A steady paced 23.6miles. Took water and gels and used them all up, but still really tired for the last few miles. Even though the pace was easy it's just time spent running that sometimes gets to you. 3hrs16. Sunny day and went through some pretty rural (and astronomically expensive) villages. Lots more traffic than usual.
Happy hols Lily and good luck with tomorrows run Cal.
Hello. 9.15miles in just over 1hr07. Slow first mile and mounting irritation with the constant thick breeze that's blown for months. I really wish it would piss off. Switched up pace halfway through for no particular reason. Uneventful.
Everybody's arse and legs are playing up.
3k incline run on the gym treadmill yesterday to finish off.
To the windmill today for Kate Bush reps. It's about the only thing that falls into the category of training, and I do not like it. 5.7miles with 8x hill sprints. I console myself that the worst bit is once you finish the sprint and slow into recovery pace, with teeth bared and body aching from the shoulders down for the next while. Sadly I'm neither a sprinter nor a fell runner. I'm more long distance haulage. 43:16 so a bit slower than usual. Windy, just where I didn't want it to be. There was a driving instructor teaching someone hill starts on the windmill rise today.
Good stuff from each and everyone. Don't break yourself swit.
