14C, cool, grey and misty. A 15 mile run. Legs just felt ordinary, and I’d drunk a couple of pints yesterday at a beer festival so I ran easy pace. Listened to podcasts again. Had 3 gels and 500ml water. Didn’t struggle, and no bad niggles. 

The misty fields near The Pebley pub caught my eye so I snapped a photo. 

Finished feeling I could have done a few more miles, not shattered. Ten weeks to New York marathon.

15C, mild, wet. A 7 mile run. Stepped out into a shower but it eased off after a few km.  Legs didn’t have bounce, making this a tired, slow run. Not complaining though, as running on tired legs is ideal preparation for doing the marathon 🙂

17C, sunny with blue skies, warm. A 7 mile run. There seemed to be lots of runners about today, more than usual anyway. Right heel niggled a bit and had a stiff calf afterwards. Drank 500ml water and tried to pace myself because of the temperature.
