Another long one! Five minutes faster than my last 21k on the same route, so pleased with that. Again, I felt it in my ankles over the last few k but they feel ok again now. Will now (thankfully) keep to slightly shorter runs in the build up to the Bath Half so that I feel fresher on the day. Also plan to work on my calf raises as I know they help with the strength in my ankles. It was perfect weather for running today and my water and fuelling worked well, so I will be making sure I make some Power flapjacks before race day too! Off now to read about everyone else's weekend runs🙂
Oops,I did it again...😉: Another long one... - Bridge to 10K

Well done Sandra! Good luck with the half Bath!😊
Yay! Well done Sandra! I use power flapjack too! 😆
Wow, well done Sandra, and speedy too! Bring on that half!
How are you feeling about yours Madge? Two weeks now isn't it?😮😀x
Hi Sandra, yes.......aaarrrggghhh!.......but, actually feeling a bit better, as though I've turned a bit of a corner as it's nearly here. 😱 one more long run (20k) this week, then cut back.
At parkrun on Saturday I was surprised at how many people I was talking to still hadn't put in anything longer than 6-10 miles, and one person I spoke to hasn't done anything over 5k! , so did feel quite pleased that, despite how really tough it is, I feel like I've done the prep work.
Legs feel fine, in fact I was surprised how quickly I recovered after the first 20k ......but not counting my chickens, I want to enjoy it, so I don't mind putting the work in.....
Hold on tight, here we go! 🤗 Getting a tiny bit excited too....😄
Cor blimey that's a fantastic time! Very well done Good luck in Bath!
Brilliant, Sandra, well done! sounds like you're on the way to a great race 😀
Congrats Sandraj - sounds like you've really got this sorted
Wow, that is a great run Sandra. If you can do this for fun, just think of what you can do on race day. Huge congrats!
Fun??? Oh, it was supposed to be fun?😉 Not sure I felt that over the last few km but I was buzzing afterwards! 😊
Ha, ha, ha! Yes, can someone please tell me why I am doing this......😂😂😂.....and where does the 'fun' bit happen?
Picture the sweaty, soggy, emotional wreck.....that's going to be shuffling over the finish line.........(I hope 😬)
Not what you're looking for?
