Did my LSD today.
Met up with Ian and did a 22.5 mile circuit that took in Spott, Stenton, East Linton, John Muir and finished off, just to make it "challenging" you understand, with a climb up and over Brunt Hill.
The pace was manageable and I didn't feel too bad until the last two mile to be honest, when the climb over the Brunt and then the short sharp climb from the ford up to our house just hit me.
Still. Pleased to get a run in that's in the twenties. I should be doing long runs fairly regularly. And I will be doing just that in two weeks time (all going to plan). But more about that nearer the time.
Sent off an application for the Northumberland Coastal Marathon in August. It's basically the Northumberland Coastal run.... times two! Starts at Alnwick goes north to Beadnell, turns ... and goes back. Not going to be one for a fast time I'm thinking. Hopefully we will get in as it's limited to 60 runners.
