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.

New trainers, another pair of New Balance Fresh Foam 1080’s whilst also trying out Enertor insoles for the first time after getting them in a special deal from Superdrug. Didn’t mean to go as far as I did but you have to take the times when your legs feel good and go for it. Started to flag towards the end but didn’t have anything (water/liquid and bloks) with me, so pretty chuffed.

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.
