Yesterday I went for the first of this week's two long runs. Nineteen miles in the rain - character building.
Afterwards I considered postponing the second long run until Wednesday - if the weather was bad.
The weather was dry so this afternoon I ventured out for another nineteen miles. Using the route of the Otley 10 again so I could accurately run each mile quicker than the preceding mile. Hard work at the end when running the last two miles into a strong headwind.
This evening I picked up an entry form for the Harrogate Charities 10k. This appears to fit in nicely with my training as it would entail me running to the start and home again afterwards - a total of approx 26 or 27 miles.
