LR Easy 2:11:40  16.03 mi (8:13 / mi) +355m 7:41 / mi
Was still in two minds about doing the race but thought that at best I would probably manage at best between steady to HMP. So no much point taking up most of a day in what would have been basically a harder training run. Run up to HH/CW, ran one loop of kingshill and felt ok-ish so at the 8 mile point on the run tried to up the pace for the second lap, immediately started to struggle with coughing so dialled it back to easy. Quite nice weather for running although it started raining heavily during the 12th mile, bumped into Kate, Milo and the dogs. Had to stop for 5 mins or so to help them back to the car in the heavy rain as Milo likes to carry on and the dogs hate heavy rain and just stand still! Finished the run home via HH, was starting to feel tired towards the end so maybe overdid the easy pace considering i'm not feeling well. Short stop for water at mile 5 and mile 11.
