Just 3 Weeks to Go

I kept running on Monday and Tuesday with the usual runs.  This meant running on 6 consecutive days, so time for a break and to allow my legs to recover.

After 4 days off and feeling fresh again I took on just one last long run 3 weeks before Marathon day. After a couple of miles warm up, I was joined by Stef and Baz for a half marathon around Hungerton and Cold Newton, so quite a hilly route, run at a steady pace.  After completing the 13.1 miles with my 2 running buddies I kept going for another few miles – making approx 19 miles in total. Felt good afterwards – if the marathon was next week, I think I’d be ready!
