3C, foggy, cool. A 7 mile run. The headlamp didn’t help much, with the fog moisture glaring back at me. Though I’ve been round the route hundreds and hundreds of times I felt disorientated at times and zig-zagged across the path in parts. So I was surprised to do a decent time/avg pace.

It is 16 weeks to the Manchester marathon so I’m starting to focus on another training sequence. It feels like I am still recovering from doing the 2 USA marathons, so I’ll be tailoring the first few weeks around work and my fitness.

Distance:  11.46.km

5C, cool, sunny with clear skies. A 7 mile run.  Legs felt OK today, had a bit of bounce through most of the run. Ideal running conditions today, lovely and cool and no frost.  Didn’t check watch on the way around and was surprised at the average pace, quicker than I’d usually do on a fairly comfortable run. Still blistering on right instep, a legacy from Canyon City marathon.
