Wednesday 17th May – 8 miles (Long run) – 1:15:08

Finally managed to get around to squeezing in a long run. Was mentally intimidated at the thought but felt ok as soon as I set off. The first half was on road to Aberford and the second half was back along very pleasant country paths. Wasn’t pushing too hard and ended up with a 9’23” pace, but that’s fine. Felt good overall and very happy when complete.

Sunday 14th May – 4 miles

I was going to rest on Sunday but was encouraged by friends to head out. We went and did a circuit of St Aiden’s nature reserve which turned out to be around 4 miles. Pace was very leisurely and we were chatting all the way around. Concluded with a coffee at the Rivers Meet cafe in Methley. Would recommend.
