9C, cool, mostly cloudy. The plan called for a 60 minute run in HR zones 1-2. That’s one full lap of RV and one lap of just the main lake. There was a cold headwind on the near side, from the south, and the other side felt milder and was sheltered. Legs felt tired and stiff and it took the first lap to loosen up. Then I saw my HR fall slightly while my pace increased slightly. No problems. Drank 500ml water.
Just one week to go to the London Marathon. Plan to pick up my race number on the Wednesday afternoon as I’ve scheduled to be in London that day for a work matter.
