What a difference a day makes

So yesterday I slept in until 9:30, today by 9:30 I had already run 6 miles.

The route was as hilly as I'd expected. The route out had just two little hills and one good down-hill and the rest seemed pretty flat. Unfortunately, running it the opposite direction I quickly came to realise that those 2 miles that 'seemed pretty flat' were actually slightly downhill on the way out and now I was looking at 2 miles slightly uphill. Oh boy!

Luckily I had fueled with a little sweet potato (1.5) and a sprinkling of cheese (2) and not only did I survive, I did it in a minute and a half faster than last Sunday!

I refueled with another pineapple pot (1.5) and a ribena really light (0).

Now I'm off to organise, clean, and make cupcakes for work tomorrow.

  1. 6 miles is fantastic! One day I hope to be running that distance again.
    Thank you for your comment on my blog and for the tip off on the Sainsburys two-pepper pack!
