Running long 2:24:53  20.0 mi (7:15 / mi)
Long run today at Haddo to work on undulating hills. Was about 17 degrees and slightly overcast with a light breeze. Had porridge breakfast before going out and then gels after second and fourth laps (six laps total so approx 6.7 miles and 13.4 miles through).
Really happy with today’s run and felt good throughout (possibly with exception of mile 19 where i was beginning to feel it going up and down the really lumpy section of the lap).
Energy felt good and approx interval of 6 miles per gel seemed to work ok, I used about 2/3 of the gel each time. Will possibly take approach of 4 gels on the day doing the same.
Good end to a high mileage week and now only 9 weeks to go until race day!
