Day 107 - Monday 27th September: Milton Half Hour

Run: 3.33 miles
Time: 29 minutes 18 seconds

At last! A third run day in a row. All these rest days towards the end of the marathon training feel very odd, having got into the habit of running so much. I guess it was all new to me when I did it for London, but this time round it's a struggle to not be running at least every other day.

A gentle half hour is called for, so I head out on a 3ish mile route, and even this feels odd, as I miss the 5 mile version of this lunchtime loop. I run it steadily and comfortably in an 8m50s pace for the first couple of miles, speeding up a little though mile 3 to the end.

I was planning to swim this evening too, but having had a filling this afternoon my face was still half asleep, and I
really didn't feel up to it. Maybe I'll go tomorrow instead.

Running 13.1 miles in memory of Carl

I ran the Silverstone Half Marathon on 15th March 2009. I managed the 13.1 mile course in 2 hours and 4 minutes. Not a bad effort for my first Half Marathon! I returned in 2010 to run it in 1 hour 54 minutes, and plan to do it again in 2011. I decided to run this in aid of The PSC Trust and PSC Support in memory of my brother Carl, who died from liver failure in November 1997. If you'd like to sponsor me for this - please email me at PSC Trust
