7C, cool, a bit overcast with sunny breaks.  Went for a 15 mile run. Didn’t feel on top form so just took it steady.  Not as much bounce in my legs today, but it’s been my biggest weekly total mileage in this training cycle: 7+7+7+7+15=43 miles. Had a gel before starting, 2 on the run and 500ml water. No niggles 🙂

Yesterday was the sixth anniversary of me changing from lifelong couch potato to runner. See training run #1. Never thought I’d end up running marathons!

It’s 3 weeks to the Sheffield Half Marathon, and 12 weeks to the Liverpool Marathon. Feel like I’m ahead of training schedule. That’s good, as I’ve two days working in Edinburgh this coming week and I might not get a run in.
