Really pleased with today’s first effort of the long run for the year, having done 9 miles the other week and nothing in between, I really feel that I could done a half marathon (albeit not pretty) distance with my fitness where it is currently I am hoping to build on my speed and pace to help get the goals that I want for this year.

On another note, its great knowing that I didn’t have to do another 10 miles on top, unlike full marathon distance training where your just getting started.

So with a Christmas works party being in London the night before, I take the opportunity to go for a nice run around London before heading back on the train.

This run was very nice indeed with the temp being perfect and not many being around at that time of the morning, a bonus in being able to re-run some of the Marathon route also.

Plus I was able to complete the 500 mile’s on these shoes and nice end to their service.

Nothing like fitting a Half Marathon race when training for a full Marathon. Really pushed it in the last few miles to make it more of a race than a easy long miler.

Happy with how everything went and got a PB for Half also.

What better way to start your day off than a early morning run around your town, legs must of stayed in bed, it was a hard slog towards the end and at one point wasn’t sure if I was going to do it.

On days like these (not the song) you really need the mental attitude to really push for pain etc.
