parkrun start at Bushy with Mike [we run at a modest 8.30 pace] and Susan then a run back along the Thames, muddy in places but kept thing interesting. Susan left at 15 miles and Mike at 21 miles and I carried on pootling along after to Clapham where I took a 15 minute refuel stop [hadn’t had any breakfast] at the marathon distance.
I had considered doing the rest of the day in 3 mile jumps with little rests but the legs just kept on going for another 8 miles when just as I was debating whether to stop at 38 miles and have a longer recovery for Sunday or break the back of the remaining mileage by going to 41 miles, my watch died [after only 6 hours!] so the decision was made for me. Rather annoyed but at least 35 miles done and still just in the game with 76 miles to cover in 2 days.
Hopefully won’t be any problem getting the MMM2015 with minimum mileage for the last 2 days [and therefore do at least 733 miles for a record month] but it would be nice to get those other targets. Tomorrow will be the crunch day at 40 miles or more.
