The focus this week was clearly on getting out running and starting to build the mileage base for the London Marathon. I am not looking at much speedwork as I will be helping my Wife run it this year and we will be aiming for 5:30 or so. Whilst this may seem easy in comparison the the 4hours I have run before it brings its own challenges, namely that your body is taking a heavy pounding for 90mins more!

11miles in 1:44 at 9:26 pace. This is the furthest I have run in a single run for 2 years, struggled a little towards the end but a great run nonetheless.
