This morning’s run was good. I extended it a little, with a minor inroad back into Battersea Park, plus a return route up Queenstown Road instead of Silverthorne, forcing me back down Wandsworth Road home. All in all, an extra 1.16km, taking me up to 8.35km in total. Time: 40m 50s, extrapolating to a 48m 54s 10km.

Friday, I intend to do the Queenstown Road route there and back, which should take me up to 9km. Then 9km runs on Monday and Wednesday followed by an easy jog Friday ready for the big race the following Monday. Training has been slap-dash, but I now know I’m able to run the distance, and should get a semi-respectable time.
