Sunday Morning Half Marathon (and a bit) Run

Jolly pleasant 13.4 mile run this morning. I am on-call for work this week and so I had my wife at home as taxi should I have got called and needed her to drive out and pick me up. Luckily she didn’t need to — nobody called :)

First of the many longer runs in my Virgin Money London Marathon training plan’s “Going Further” phase which ramp up to about 20 miles later in the year. In total I’ll end up running almost 700 miles of training runs before the race itself on 13th April.

Weather-wise a little colder than of late, around 2–3°C. Not sure my legs ever really warmed up but the rest of me was warm enough.
