An early start

Another good 12.21Km in the bag and bang on my goal average pace of 7.27min/Km.

Was up and out for 6am this morning, was surprised how quickly daylight hours are shortening, will have to find my head torch soon or run a bit later. Only saw 2 runners this morning, the usual 2 gazelle like young ladies I usually see, always a good morning and a nice smile as we cross, a nice way to start the day .. gawd knows what time they start out ..

Took extra fuel today which seemed to help , decided on taking fuel at each km from 7Km onwards.. the next step is going to be hydration although so far hasn't been an issue. A trip to local runners needs to look at hydration vests and maybe some new shoes ..it's way to tempting in there 😊

That's me till Monday now .. Happy bank holiday weekend everyone, happy days 😊😊

That’s terrific. Well done.

I have a cheap kalenji hydration backpack from decathlon, and I must admit it was a lifesaver in the hot weather (except when I did 12k without it and got badly dehydrated - plonker!)

Thanks Sadie-runs the goal is 10 miles or 16.1km nearly there .. 2 or 3 more increases in distance should do it 😁
