8C, overcast, mild, windy. Did another 15 mile run.
Midweek I got a bit of ‘cross training’ in waiting outside a gig venue in London for ten hours in the freezing cold. Lots of shuffling, jogging on the spot and just shaking with the freezing cold. It made me miss a run, then getting back home in the early morning messed up the next day too. As I planned to do the long run on Saturday I didn’t run on Friday either.
That meant my legs were fresh and strong for Saturday, and I felt good all the way around. Not especially fast, but I enjoyed the hills around Harthill. A gel before starting and two on the run, with 500ml water. I had bought a lot of cut price Maxi fuel gels from Asda and found the berry ones have quite a strong flavour. Might get used to it. Didn’t notice the usual niggles, and the physio tape on the ball of my left foot helped minimise the discomfort.
