LONDON MARATHON TRAINING; THE LONG RUN!

THE JESUS LIZARD, THE IMPOSSIBLE IS POSSIBLE!

Tess and me set out on another of Marius Bakken's long easy runs. The Sky's threatening clouds cleared to leave bright sunshine as we reached the Royal birkdale golf course, we made our way along the sandhill paths, up and over the big dipper and on to the Ainsdale pinewoods.

We then carried on towards the Formby woods, the sea was right in and the sun glistened off the crashing waves, cool, very picturesque.
we made our way into the Formby woods and did a big loop round and headed for home.

I took only 4 Lucozade tablets on the whole run and was pleased to see that i felt quite strong over the last couple of miles of tarmac. = 3 hours 5 mins
Over 9 hours of running so far this week inc some real quality sessions

Nice week and long run Rick.

It's been raining lightly the last 12 hours - first time in ages... thanks for sending it down our way :)

"Jesus" that lizard is fast. For those that doubt the validity of bare-foot running they should note: That reptile has no shoes!!
