Another easy 30 minutes. I ran 5 mins 30 at marathon pace mid-way through the run and it felt awful. That's normal, don't worry. Total distance 8.1km in 35:40.
I'm trying to get fired up for the marathon. I'm in the negative thoughts stage at the moment:
- have I done enough long runs?
- have I done enough strength and hill work?
- am I too old for all this?
Again, perfectly normal for me.
