5C, cold, breezy.  Went for a 16 mile run.  Nice sunrise and broken cloud.  Heavy overnight rain left large puddles all along the route.  Felt blister on left instep and had a niggle on left shin for first part of the run. Drank 500ml water and had 2 gels.  Off work for a week now so will be able to run in daylight for a change.

8C, mild and breezy, overcast.  Another 7 mile run.  Nice weather for running.  Felt a bit of bounce towards the end.  Forgot to stop Garmin at the end so knocked 3 minutes off the recorded time, seemed about right. Still blistering on left instep.
Didn’t run Thursday due to a London trip for work. It felt like cross-training carrying my heavy laptop across the city.

2C, cold, rainy.  Went for a 7 mile run.  Didn’t feel like it after a disrupted sleep hearing wind and rain lashing the bedroom window.  The rain was light by the time I set out and didn’t last the whole first lap.  Didn’t feel fast or strong, just eased around. A slow time but another marathon training run ticked off.
