Standard loop up Leith Valley and back through Ross Creek. Feeling good today, few mins quicker than the past few weeks, nice to feel the body adapting the week before I intend to up the mileage again.

Did the half marathon course at cruisy pace then did the faster running once the route hit the waterfront. Lots of ice so was pretty careful at the start, felt ok cruising through the first bit, legs a little unresponsive after last night. Felt good when I started the effort, had a gel as well for race practise, was easy to pick the pace up on the way back as it was a tailwind. Going to have to be pretty lucky not to get a solid headwind for 14km of this race.
Another good week ticked off despite the food poisoning. One more week at 70km to make sure I'm recovered and then I'll bump it up to 80km for the next 3 weeks before tapering.
