Nipped out for a run earlier. Added two stretches of flat road to what had been my longest circuit to try and breach the 10k barrier. And breach it I did: 10.59k. Yes, in a paltry 1:11:05: but there’s time to work on that (as per my comments yesterday) and a climb of 663m is both healthy and a decent excuse. OK, so my cousins are running the TenTenTen route in around 45’: golly for them, they’re in their 20s and fit. I’m in my 30s and, in spite of improvements, unfit. I’ll never be fit. But there is room for improvement… and just about two months to improve!
