An early start this morning for my longest run since August last year. 15 steady miles which felt comfortable and controlled throughout at a pace of 8:30min/mile. Due to my lack of head torch (I put it down somewhere!) I discarded my planned route and pounded my usual road route of Treeton - Europa link - Meadowhall loop. Not the most inspiring scenery but, with Talk Ultra Podcast for company, the time drifted by fairly quickly.
Thanks to Ivor, The Follands and The Longdens for their kind sponsorship of this run.
So that's 41 miles for the week and 123.2 miles so far, still technically 13 miles behind schedule but certainly not worrying to much at this stage.
Fundraising has gone well again this week and I have now raised £425.45 of my £2015 target for Hospice UK. Thanks to the kind generosity of so many good friends.
If you would like to support the challenge and sponsor one or more of the 2015 miles please see my fundraising page at www.virginmoneygiving.com/stevetrotter. I also have paper sponsor forms if that is easier; just message me the amount you would like to pledge or ask me next time we see each other.
Roll on week 5!
