1C, dark, cold, wintry showers. A 20 mile run. Legs felt good and it seemed like I maintained a good pace/effort throughout. Had 4 gels and 1 litre of water. Was soaked through by the time I reached Harthill (12km) and was running into a stiff headwind with icy snow hurting my eyes.
Finished feeling relatively OK. Was keeping a good pace in the last few km and could have carried on a bit further. (Can’t always say that after a 20-miler!)
Time: 3:05:27 (could only find one faster 20 miler, back in 2013)
Avg HR: 143 (seems low)
Avg pace: 5:45 min/km
