training run #602

Mild, sunny, temperature started at 10C in the shade and rose to 14C in the shade according to house thermometer.   Went for the usual 13 mile run, carrying 300ml water and having a gel just before I started.  I’d have carried more water but had not bought bigger bottles and didn’t want to bother with the Camelbak waist pack.  Felt strong from the start so I ran faster then usual, just more than a comfortable pace.  No niggles, just felt hot and finished a bit tired and slightly dehydrated.  Legs felt bouncy throughout, running on the balls of my feet or mid foot.  A great run in great conditions, and I knocked 29 seconds off my 13 mile PB (previous best was run #552 in late Feb).
