A Fantastic 28k Run!!

As predicted I am feeling so good right now!!

I have had a fantastic run this morning :-)
I ran through a nature area, on a bridge over the sea, and then by a lake!
I then met my friend Felicity and ran 7k with her.

The weather was great when I woke up, sunshine and almost no wind but, of course, that changed. It was actually quite cloudy, cold, and with a nasty headwind when I was running :-(

Oh well, what doesn't kill me makes me stronger right??

I was a little tired at the end but had run 28.3k with a pace of 6:10 which I am very happy with :-)

I had a cup of coffee and a bowl of Cheerios one hour before the run. Just before I went out of the door I had a High5 energy gel and then had one every 5k. This worked very well.

Woohoo only 3 weeks until Madrid Marathon!!


  1. In my opinion, this is the most important test before the marathon....Yoy ran easy and with good feelings...I´m sure that your Madrid Marathon will be perfect!!!

    1. Thanks Pancho :-)

      It was by far the best long pre-marathon run yet! I am so excited about Madrid now.

      And once again, congratulations on your great time in Barcelona :-)

  2. Keep up the excellent work and good luck for Madrid!

    1. Thank you :-) I don't have long to wait now!

  3. Looks like a great long run course. Good pace esp with WIND..

    .wind can be a major drag (pun) 8)

    1. I'm feeling much better about Madrid now.

      I was really happy with my pace and didn't realise how fast I was going! I only looked at how far I was running and didn't once look at the pace.

      It made a nice change to just run at a pace that felt right :-)
