0735 ... long run of 23 miles. Used an out and back route from Otley through Ilkley and Addingham and then to the crest of the hill on the Silsden road. The first half took just under 1h 42, the return journey took 1h 33 which was very pleasing indeed. Two unfortunate things happened whilst running though: (1) I now have a blister on the big toe on my right foot - not sure why, I wore the same shoes on the same route only a few weeks ago; (2) I was stung on the palm of my right hand by a wasp or a bee - very painful.
1355 ... the usual cycling followed by strength and conditioning exercises.
1840 ... stretching
