Note

An article in The Times said that you lose 1% of speed each year from age 40 to 50 and then 1.1% from 50 to 60. While that may be true I reckon that 20+ years of accumulated training more than counteract this. I for one feel that I’m getting faster not slower.

Fabulously beautiful run on Jersey, including the return leg along the clifftops in the sunset. Just wonderful.

Pushed it relatively hard in the middle bits along the disused railway track - 5x 4.15-4.30 on the trot. Have discovered that I am now consititutionally unable to run slowly, which I think is a good thing.

Running 51:48 [3] 10.37 km (5:00 / km) +142m 4:41 / km
ahr:145 max:183

Attempt at a longish loop through Richmond Park. The legs were willing, the body was not - just no energy so gave up after 10k and walked / jogged back. Perhaps should have gone a bit more slowly to start with.

Deliberately went out in the rain to test some of my gear, with unimpressive results:
- Neoprene socks (with new Brooks Glycerin shoes): lovely
- W-OL semi-ski gloves: wouldn't have wanted to do any longer in them
- Standard beanie hat - good
- Tracksmith Bislett trousers - definitely not waterproof but I guess they wicked ok. Any harder rain and would have stuck to me though
- Tracksmith Elliot (I think) top - ditto
