Wk3 – 4M steady run

Wednesday night was meant to be a run then circuits…but I gave up after the run. :-O  It was a good run, from the flat, around the bridges on the Clyde – up to Salt Market and back along the North side of the river to the Millenium Bridge at the BBC.

We had a good strong steady pace from the start and maintained it right the way through.  About 2-3 miles in I was wishing it was over, but I knew we only had about 1-2 miles left so just stuck in at it.

It was a full moon, but it was dark and cold.  As it’s along the Clyde the route is really flat and never really goes above 50m above sea level.  I was running with my friend who has a recurring injury, but she felt strong and we both pulled each other along I think.

We finished the distance at an 8:34 pace / 7.0 mph – around about my marathon pace.  I need to do some more long runs at around about that pace (6.9 – 7.0 mph) to get my endurance up I think.  And maybe some more runs on hills at that speed too.

Oh and as we were passing the Bell’s Bridge… a funny Glaswegian man pointed at his watch as we passed him and said..’You’re running late’.   Hee hee.  Funny man. 😀
