8C, mild, dry, mostly overcast. A 20 mile run. The schedule called for 16 miles but I thought about doing 17.5 or 20. Want to push past 20 miles at some point and legs felt well rested so 20 miles was on.
Drank 1 litre of water and had 4 gels. At Todwick roundabout I turned into a cool headwind that stayed with me through Swallownest and along the Beighton bypass.
Went through 13 miles in 2 hours (good for me) and feeling OK. In the last couple of miles kept an OK pace and wasn’t in any real difficulty. At the finish I’d knocked a minute off last week’s time, but its more important to get round in good shape and avoiding injury.
Avg HR: 148bpm
Avg pace: 5:43 min/km
