First Runners Choice Marathon Training Clinic of the Summer 2013
We had our first session, starting at the Honest Lawyer in London. We went out for a 8.7 km run after John's introduction to the clinic which we knocked off in about 44 minutes. (I screwed up my GPS half way through) Anyhow, that equates to about 8:10 per mile. It was supposed to be an "easy" run, so I guess that qualifies -- but, as usual, I was drenched in sweat by the end. I had to slow down the pace for the second half of it, but felt strong for the last kilometre or so. I ran with a new Half Marathon clinic participant, Joe, and also formally met Blair, who I'd seen out before but had never met personally.
