Anyway, today's run was a belter and filled me with loads of confidence for a good marathon time. Just need to make sure the sun doesn't make an appearance on the day. I felt really comfortable all the way round and felt there was loads left in me at the end.
Took in a route from town over the south side and then round the west end. Even managed to catch the bikers out on their annual Easter jaunt for Yorkhill. Pah! I'm running 96 miles to raise money for Yorkhill - feel free to sponsor me - but they've probably got the right idea. It was pretty spectacular to see thousands of bikes going through the streets of Glasgow. I bet the motorists weren't so excited about it though.
I finished the 20.3 miler in 2:45:33 - which is about 7 minutes faster than I ran the route at the beginning of February. The average pace was 8:10. Even picked up the pace at the end, without feeling it.
Scores on the door: 7.45, 8.22, 8.44, 8.35, 8.18, 8.18, 8.03, 7.33, 8.32, 8.03, 8.33, 8.04, 8.02, 8.24, 8.33, 8.10, 7.54, 7.40, 7.35 and 7.55.
Met up with Super-Marconic-not-so-sonic after his epic 27+ miler. He was slightly broken... but that might have something to do with running over the Balloch horseshoe and then on to the WHW in 3:15.
After a spa and sauna at the gym we went to the cinema to see 10,000BC. It's a great movie. I'd highly recommend it. Sonic is now forgiven for choosing Be Kind Rewind a few weeks ago. I'm still getting a chick flick next time round though.
