Friday 15th Rest Day
I swear I'm stiffer by the end of rest days than if I just run. But I do what I'm told becaue I know it's right. DOMS from Weds - can tell I haven't done that session in a while and also ate my recovery bar on the eay to the gym instead of having it after like it's meant to be. EEjit.

Sunday 17th - Harrow Half
I'll be honest, I was pretty nervous about this. I wanted a target because I enjoy races more if I have one, but I was also not sure what I could hit and whether 13 miles at pace would be too much in my 17weeks-of-40 state. As it happened I had an absolute blast and smashed by target of 7'20/mile pace. mr B also had a stormer and sat exactly on his planned pace of 7'00/mi. I think the photos say it all :) I mean it's funny because the Half Marathon at Eton Dorney I did last March and which was a total disaster was waaaaaaay slower, but this felt like a different beast and I high fived and bantered my way aorund the course.
1:32:52, 7'06/mi, 166bpm and felt good
r B: 1:31:43
Total miles: 48.6
