6C, cool, overcast. Needed to get a long run in after ‘only’ running the half marathon last weekend (though it was a tough test with the hills).  Did my 18 mile route. Had a gel before starting, then at 7km, 16km and 22km.  Drank 1 litre of water.  No niggles and felt more confident than usual tackling the hills.  Went through 21.1km in 2h01m, and was running through Swallownest as my twin brother Jeff will have started the Greater Manchester Marathon today.  A good run and it turned out to be my fastest 18 miler of this marathon training period.
