This was the run I’ve been thinking about all week. I reckon 20 miles on the road is worth at least 30 off road. Having decided that I’m not planning to run a road marathon next year these long runs on the road will probably be my last for a while. So I’m going to ‘enjoy’ them as much as I can. Loch Ness is now 5 weeks on Sunday so after this run I have one long run (22 miles) in two weeks left to do.
I was pleased with my overall pace (7.29) but the last section of just under 4 miles was hard work. I was feeling the effects of a full week of running but managed to keep it going to the end.
So this week I have run 52miles and for August I have run 213miles. I’m well on my way to my goal of 2,000 miles for the year with 1724.5miles with 4 months to go.
Last week when I was running one day I was thinking about how many completed races various people have done. It set me thinking whether I could work it out from the official results on the whw race web site. So over the past week I had a go. I copied all the results into excel, sorted them out into names and worked it out. Now I realise that many of you will think this is very sad but hey I enjoyed doing it and I find it interesting! Please note that this is unofficial and I’m sure Dario has the official list and mine may well be wrong but if you are interested in having a look click on the picture below. It is in an excel file…
Finally my Football prediction for tomorrow – Everton 2 vs 0 Portsmouth.
