Week Eleven, eh? Wow, this is getting close…
The most significant thing this week is that I am writing this journal from San Diego, California. Which means that I have spent rather a lot of time on aeroplanes, and shall be doing the same next weekend… which in turn has had a bit of a knock-on effect on my training.
To be fair, that has gone better than I had expected.
I managed two runs at home during the week, on Tuesday and Thursday. Nothing terribly special there. Then Friday was spent flying.
On Saturday I went for a six mile run here in San Diego. The weather was pretty overcast and dull – not cold exactly, but not too warm either.
On Sunday, I went for a drive and found a place called Lake Miramar, an attractive place where lots of people were running, walking, cycling or roller-blading round the lake. I decided to try a couple of laps round the track myself (each lap being 5 miles)
I started out well in the overcast conditions. Then suddenly the sun burned through the cloud and the temperature soared… By mile three I had to stop and walk!
Then the temperature dropped a bit, thank goodness. It was still very warm, but not insanely so. I managed to complete the first lap and run a second, but I was not going to try for a third. Not in those temperatures.
Let’s hope it’s windless and quite cool when the marathon comes!
