Back on training form

Well it’s been a good weekend for running. Now am back on good form as the holiday approaches:

Friday afternoon was 6.37 miles around Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James Park, then back up Park Lane and along the Bayswater Road to home at 5.9 mph.

Saturday did the shorter circuit around Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, thus avoiding the traffic and crowds at Hyde Park Corner: 3.98 miles at 6.6 mph.

Then this afternoon another circuit like Saturday’s, but slightly longer to avoid the Race For Lifers who had just finished their run: 4 miles at 6.5 mph.

Am thinking of a half marathon in the autumn to keep the training going.

Have been inspired by reading Haruki Murakami’s What I talk about when I talk about running.
