Friday 8th - Easy run to work
Getting wet through again! Ran to primrose hill to meet AdidasRunners for a hills technique session. They were slow hills and only 5 of them. 1:43:14, 11miles, 9'30/mi OA, 132bpm
Saturday 9th - 90 minutes Easy Long Run
1:49:28, 14miles, 7'46/mi, 159bpm Pacing Mr B to 8min miles for first 7, then a few quicker with him and then some plodding at the end. I enjoyed this so much! Felt great for those first 7 miles. Just like it was no effort at all and I could keep going for ever. However, stpeeing up to 7:45 / 7:30 etc was a big change. No idea what to aim for at Harrow. I think maybe anything under 1:30 is unrealistic. Right now I'd like to stay inside London Marathon GFA (3:45) at Chester but 5 weeks is a long time in preggo land and I suspect I'll be a lot slower). I mean I don't really care - I really am enjoying it all regardless at the moment!
