11km in cool and sunny conditions.Mostly paths with some small hills and having to cross four main roads.

Felt bad at half way…actually felt bad whole second half but knew I was not going far so struggled on.

Weight 66.6 Kgm ( slowly getting the weight off)

Slowed when passing young guy to give him some encouragement….so that’s an excuse for being slow. Plus my right quad still hurting especially if I try to run up hill.

I used to say that I could race one minute per Km faster than I train. Not sure if that’s still true but sounds good.

Today’s run


I see I still have a long way to go.
