Although it was only my 4th run in as many weeks (and 6th in as many months), today I felt like I was actually running for the first time. It was along the same (Rhone riverside) route as last week, though by stark contrast to my laboured plod of 7 days ago, I was skipping along like a Spring lamb. Of course, ‘skipping along’ is a relative term (and the vision of me as a Spring lamb is certainly something to test the old grey matter) but for the record, I did around 12.5k in a little under 67 minutes.
To save you doing the math(s), this equates to a 3h 45m marathon pace, but whether I was training at, or slower or faster than, my target marathon pace is for me to know and you to guess… 🙂
Here are some random photos taken after I’d finished… (You will note the huge difference in weather from yesterday !)
