A cold winters morning.

Sunday, 27 February 2011


Awoke at 5am and got all my kit ready for a day out. My plan was to get the 05.55 sleeper train to bridge of orchy and run down to balmaha, giving me a 40.5 mile run. Todays run was my first long long run of the year, so my plan was to run steady to the top of loch lomond and see how i got on from there.My first 12 miles were all under 10m a mile, then my next 11 miles were all under 13m a mile.
My next and last 7.5 miles were all inside 16minute miles. I had a stop at rowerdenan hotel for a coke and extra water to the finish. I arrived at balmaha at 5.50pm and the bus was due at 6pm.I arrived home at 7.45 pm and had a large glass of wine by 8.15. Used my garmin 305 and the battery lasted 9hrs 30min so will try my next long run with the heart rate monitor and see how long it will run.
Total mileage 40.6 miles 9hrs 24m 44s
