Tales from the riverbank

I had missed the opportunity to run the Speyside Way today so i decided that as i was training for the RAW i would attempt to at least cover the same distance now after last weeks training i  wanted to change the way i train so i had downloaded the Comrades Training Plan but all i took from it was to ditch the Monday And Friday allowing me a proper rest before a big mileage weekend followed by a recovery so i put it to the test and today proved that taking yesterday off made me feel better,back to my run off i set at 05:40 and headed for the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kirkintilloch i decided to head out to the Falkirk Wheel and back,so off i went, only a few guys out fishing ,the sun was just coming up and it seemed just perfect, the times per mile were looking good apart from my toilet stop so i arrived at the wheel 2hrs and 30 minutes later (ideal) and i about turned, i checked in at Marathon distance (3.25) and then at 35 Miles (the distance for the Spey) and the watch showed 4.38, so when i got back home at 37 Miles with the average pace just under 8 min miles,i felt fine and low and behold a few hours later and even my legs feel good, so i will continue to see if this is the case over the next few weeks.
