Cool, 10C at the start, rising to a mild 15C at the end.  Nice sunny day, with a breeze.  Perfect.  Followed usual 13 mile loop from home – RV – Killamarsh – Woodall – Harthill – Kiveton – Wales – RV – did one extra lap of RV – home.  The run felt comfortable, nice pace, HR OK for the first hour and went up later.  Could have carried on for ages.

Carried 700ml cordial in Camelbak and some new gels and mini fruit jellies; Aptonia stuff bought from Decathlon.  Had 4 fruit jellies and 4 gels in little 20ml toothpaste type tubes.  Liked them, and think they helped as I’d not had breakfast.

Distance:  26.31km
Time:  2:40:38
Avg HR:  155bpm
Avg pace:  6:06 min/km
Avg cadence:  87spm

A really enjoyable run in ideal sunny late summer/early autumn conditions 🙂
