taking the positives (however small)
the key run in my marathon training programme that i'm using to map my progress is the 9m race pace run. i run it over a route that gives a very similar profile and ascent proportional to snowdon.
currently i'm running it at race pace effort as i'm hoping my actual race pace will improve over the coming weeks.
anyway, today for the same perceived effort i was 2 mins quicker than a week ago. not earth shattering but progress all the same.
later today im off to the north east to take the kids cousins back who've been staying with us. the trip takes me back to some of my old stomping ground as a teenager and so i thought it'd be nice to do my long run from sunderland along the coastline to south shields and back. some great views along the way and the north east coast's salty air.
