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!!
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!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Pancho :-)Delete
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 :-)
Keep up the excellent work and good luck for Madrid!ReplyDelete
Thank you :-) I don't have long to wait now!Delete
Looks like a great long run course. Good pace esp with WIND..ReplyDelete
.wind can be a major drag (pun) 8)
I'm feeling much better about Madrid now.Delete
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 :-)
