I had the most wonderful day today.
My friend Helen aka @cloudgazer has entered the run in Kings Lynn on 2nd May 2010.
She wont mind me saying this , but she has been struggling with her training.
Working long hard hours means she finds little time to train.
Her best run to date was 4 miles in just under an hour, a good achievement in itself.
I suggested that she might like to join me today on a 6 mile training run.
A) to see how far she could run
B) to show her what a 6 mile run felt like.
So this morning with a light covering of snow on the ground we met at 10am and started our little test.
We had perfect running conditions, bright sunshine with just a little breeze.
The first mile is always the hardest but I knew by mile 3 that she would make the whole 6 miles.
So with some encouragement up the hills I tried to pull her along, with the promise of a downhill stretch.
The end result was 6.7 miles ran in 1 hour 19 mins with no stopping.
I am so proud of her 🙂 🙂
The reward was a drop of my home made Raspberry vodka followed by Assam tea and hot cross buns.
I hope we shall do this run together a good few times before her big day 🙂
