I need to say thank you to Jancanrun who earlier this week posted the tracks for a famous names playlist. I was planning a long run today and having got rather too used to my current assortment of playlists managed to organise myself yesterday to put most of the tracks into a new playlist on Deezer.
To be honest, I’m not sure what is wrong with me as I seem to be too organised. I got my kit on in record timing, I wonder if I can claim that as a PB. Mr Razouski then reminded me that he had the dentist so wouldn’t be able to save me from the long walk home (up the meanest of all hills) He sensibly suggested I drive myself to the bottom of it to ensure that the thought of walking home up it didn’t put me off my run.
So that’s just what I did. And soon I was running along the cycle path from Luton to Harpenden and beyond. The playlist certainly helped, with some forgotten tracks, such as Mika’s Grace Kelly and a couple of new ones such as Geronimo.
My training plan had me scheduled for a two hour run, and bits of it were tough, others fairly uneventful, but I managed to keep going for the full 2 hours, and then managed to find just a little more energy to get to the next whole km.
Time: 2 hours 2minutes 42 seconds
I think I may be ready for my first half marathon event n two weeks if my calves ever stop aching.
Now to relax my aching legs and start tapering before the big day.
