Onwards and upwards

Never did I believe that 3 days after a 50 mile run was I to be standing at the club in running kit ready to do a ~7 mile run with the promise of a 8:30 min/mile pace!

To tell you the truth I had planned a slowish 20 km run tonight but on returning home there was a lovely chicken casserole with buckets of rice waiting for me and I was soon found snoozing on the sofa waking just in time to realise that I did not have time to run to the club so took the car instead.

This Dear Reader was the reason I chose the second fastest group tonight choosing quality over quantity and was mindful that I may have chosen wrongly considering my heavy weekend's distance. I was proved wrong as after the hill at the start the pace continued but I found that in fact I was not at the rear but was actually at the front and for about 3 miles as the pace setter!

What makes me really happy was I was pace setting without my Garmin, slowly, consistently pacing even on the hills ( that was until I was called to back off the pace).

Good run, the pack ably led by the loquacious Emma who kept the chat and moral up.
