2C, cool, breezy.  A 20 mile run today.  It started off bright with the sun rising, clouded over for the middle part, then brightened up again at the end.  Carried on with my new fuelling approach with a porridge pot pre-run breakfast, had 4 gels at 7km, 14km, 21km and 26 km, and drank 1 litre of water.  It seemed to work as I didn’t have a fuzzy head spell and felt slightly better (but still tired!) on the latter part of the run.  Might also be down to a cautious pace, took it easy especially early on.  A good run. Five weeks to Manchester Marathon.
