34Week 15 Wednesday Slow Faster Fast10 minutes slow, 10 minutes faster, 10 minutes fast - pretty good times uphill on Rodwell Trail at the end πŸ™‚

32Week 14 Sunday Slow Long RunNick and Phoebe asked for two easy hours - just felt bad - don't know if it was the extra heat, or overindulged the diet coke last night

29Week 14 Tuesday RecoveryThought I should research what the point of a recovery run was πŸ™‚ Took it easy, but my easy is still much quicker than it used to be - nice route down to the old pier, but cold and rainy.
28Week 13 Sunday Long RunRun for 2.5 hours first 1.5 slow then speed up if feeling good. But steady for me is now much faster than it used to be. Speeded up but really tough finish into the wind on the causeway and up the Rodwell trail. Felt bad at the end πŸ™ but inside 4hr pace πŸ™‚
