Friday – Longest Ever Run – 15 miles

Up early for a run at 7. No Breakfast. The plan was to run two laps of my 7.4 mile Shinfield circuit, stopping in between to refuel, use the toilet and change my shorts.

I started really slowly and did the first lap in reverse for variety.

I then stopped at home which was nice and the change of shorts reduced the chaffing and soreness. Starting out again on a second lap worked well and I had a spring in my step for a couple of miles as if it was a new run. However after 11 miles my left hamstring was really tight and I had to nurse it home for the last 4 miles. But I did it!!!! 11.2 miles to go. We’re over halfway. 2 months to go.
