Sunday 27th 17 mile run

Sunday soon came round and it was time to run 17 miles. I had a good nights sleep before waking early. I decided to have a small cereal bar and a coffee. I set off and it was a bit chilly and fresh but I soon warmed up after a mile. I felt good and fresh. I ran by road to sonning (4miles) then picked up the river and followed it through to caversham.

It’s a great route and certainly takes your mind off the running and the cross country route spares your legs and knees of too much road work. After reaching Rivermead sports centre I turned round and headed for home. At 11 miles I felt my body tense up and my muscles shorten which made running and my technique and speed poor. However after 4 hrs and 2 mins I completed the 17 miles. It’s hard work but we’ll keep at it!!!!
