Week 7, Day 7
Goal: 20 miles at 9 min/mile
Actual: 20 miles at 8:13 min/mile plus 2 mile cooldown.
In my defence … (And I’d like to get this in quick before Steve Marathon Coach sees this) I was told not to worry too much about pace today so I set the Garmin for 20 miles and then hid it under my running jacket, not to be checked again!
|Emergency Supplies: Gels, Personal Alarm .... more loo roll.|
I enjoyed this run. The miles flew past and I could relax and enjoy it … unlike last Sunday where the whole run felt like an uphill struggle.
My family are supporting me on my adventure to get to Paris … but as non-runners I thought I’d put today’s run in terms they could understand.
So family … here are the pubs I had to pass to complete my 20 mile run.
Distance: 20 miles
Avg Pace: 8:13 min/mi
