9C, rising to 14C, sunny and cool to start with. Nice running weather for this 20 mile run. Legs felt OK but not on top form at the start. It felt like I paced myself well and enjoyed the hills. Did a similar route to last weekend but missed out Woodall by adding a 2 mile loop past The Pebley. Drank 2x 500ml bottles of water and had gels at 7km, 14km, 21km and 27km. Finished very tired but not totally wiped out, with no significant niggles or problems. Seven weeks to the Yorkshire Marathon.
