1st Training Half Marathon Of The Year

I decided to have a rest day yesterday, for 2 reasons really, Number 1, I hoover the house before my wife's sister and husband turned up so by the time I had finished that, they were here so I played the total host and looked after our guests. Number 2 I had planned to do a long run, long as in my 1st training half for the year.

I was up early, for a Saturday, 2 weeks on the trott thanks to our next generation of Lewis's and Corbett's, I dont mind it has been really good to see everyone.

Everyone else was off to the local pool to play in the rapids, but I ellected to give it a miss and go for a run, I had planned to run down to the sea front to meet the everyone after they had finished playing in the pool. I left about 20 minutes after they left in the car, I had planned my route to follow the cycle path all the way so it was relatively flat, which was great.

























When I saw the above lap times I was very happy, and completing the route with an average of under 8 minute miles. I am suffering a bit noe with stomach cramps :( but after time im sure my body will get used to the distance and pain will be a thing of the past... Yeah right!
