4C, cool, sunny with some cloud.  A 3.7 mile run, just one lap of the main lake.  Legs felt OK but a bit sluggish.  Kept this run easy and enjoyed the weather. No problems, next run will be the Manchester Marathon on Sunday 🙂

7C, wet, mild. A 7 mile run.  Thought I might avoid the rain by running today instead of Sunday; not so.  Rained from start to finish but I still enjoyed this run, thinking ahead to next weekend and the Manchester Marathon. A bit of precipitation could end up as ideal preparation for that city. Pleased to get this far through the training schedule without a disastrous injury or illness. Noticed that Garmin again showed a high HR part way round, surely the battery in chest strap hasn’t died already, should last longer.
