10C, mild, overcast. A 23 mile run.  To add 3 miles to my 20 mile route I did a full lap of Rother Valley before heading out to High Moor, Pebley, etc.  I could tell early on my legs didn’t feel full of energy, so this was going to be tough.  Had a flapjack before starting, then 5 gels (7, 14, 19, 26, 32km) and 1 litre of water.

Started to tire with about 5 miles left.  Never any danger of stopping, just jogged and noted my heels and the ball of right foot were sore.  Sky started to brighten a bit at this point but not full sunshine.  Pleased to get this done, my longest training run ever (usually only go up to 20 miles).  Noticed shoulders and upper back ached afterwards, probably down to poor form late in the run.  

Three weeks to Manchester marathon so mileage starts to reduce and the taper kicks in.
