training run #1311

16C, heavy rain, cool.  An 8 mile run-commute.  The training plan called for a 6 mile moderate run, so I used the commute and pushed on a bit.  

Setting out into very heavy rain, wore my Salomon jacket which kept me from the cold water but I still got wet through.  Had a gel before running (no breakfast), one at halfway and drank 350ml water.

Felt strong throughout and enjoyed it.  The rain let up after 4 miles.  Thought I’d done the route faster than before from the consistent effort I was putting in, and the great feeling powering up some inclines. Had knocked about 1 and a half minutes off previous best.
