Easy run (with Park run) 1:56:31 [3] 15.01 mi (7:46 / mi)

Couldn't run last night, only realised at last minute that I was going out with some friends!

CDR effort this morning. Decided to run park run at moderate pace. Ran easy for 20 mins, ran park run in 20mins then easy after for 75mins. Energy levels were good throughout the run, the 3 mile park run felt comfortable. No problems with legs.

Aiming to run for full 7 hours tomorrow

Was bitten twice last night and L leg has swollen up considerably around the quad: warm and sore to touch. I started doing the drills, but quad was painful, running was ok, so decided to just run for an hour. Other than sore quad legs felt pretty good

Race 6:48:00 [3] 46.1 mi (8:51 / mi) +730m 8:26 / mi
shoes: Hoka Carbon X

Watch didn't start at the beginning!! probably about 2 mins.

Weather was clear skies, hot (about 31 degrees) so ideal Spartathlon training. I went out slower this time (about 8min/mile pace). I managed the heat well with armsleeves and a sahara cap: after each lap I put the hat into a large tub of water and soaked my arms in the water too.

Nutrition went to plan: diluted coke (500ml per lap) and gel every 20mins.

I kept a decent pace for the first 10 laps, the hill after about 1.5 miles was fairly challenging, foe the last 4 laps I walked it and had a gel and used the time to try and reduce my body temperature and recover. Part of the course around a single track the temperature was immense (no breeze), but I managed to run well.

Was pleased with the run, good change to test gear, heat acclimatisation, follow nutrition plan.

I did have the chance to do another lap, I would of been the only runner and I didn't want to overdo it.
