7C, clear skies, cold. First time in a long time I’ve worn a lightweight jacket over my t-shirt. Good call, as this was a chilly start for a 6 mile run, two laps of the main lake. The plan called for an easy paced 60 minute run. Legs were fine, strong but no bounce. Put that down to the taper, legs recovering and energy stores filling up. Drank 500ml. No problems. One week to go to Yorkshire Marathon.
