Today Sandra & I headed into the depths of Kent on what can only be described as a bitterly cold day. We drove down to Canterbury & the temperature gauge in the car didn't shift from 2 degrees. After we had parked we walked to the school to check in & get our timing chips (that makes me sound so professional!!). My hands were frozen through the running gloves, but of course when you get going you don't really notice the cold.
The run it's self was uneventful, I plodded round & tried to average 11mins 30 secs miles. I was actually 5 seconds under this, which pleased me as I have shaved over 2 mins off last weeks 10 miler. It even felt a little easier & more encouraging for me is my knee is pain free, so I think the little 'blip' in the week, was me just placing my foot down at a funny angle (well that's what I hope!!)
The hill at the 4th mile was like the North face of the Eiger!!
I didn't get a finishers medal today, but something more useful, a mug!!
