RACE DAY I did the final race of the Borders League Road Race series. I came first in the race and secured my first position overall.
4.05 miles in 21:05, it felt like I was sprinting all the way. I had to because 2nd placer, Lee Jones, wasn't giving in. Not even in the last half mile. I had to dig deep but I like that.
An easy job into work, 10.5 miles.
A rare day off from running, Cycled to and from work.
I had fun watching a local race whilst pushing baby Theo in his baby jogger. 10 miles.
5 mile Tempo. 5:45 pace, undulating. With warm up and cool down.
