This run was a recce for Sunday's run as I needed to work out timing and distance to join up with my club mates doing a shorter trail run as it meant a lift home.
Mentally & Physically this was a tough run as I ran it on tired legs following Saturday's run with deadlines to meet. Very happy with how it went and finished knowing I could have kept going. I'll decide what I do tomorrow when I wake up.

Attached photo from a recent race thanks to James Shelley of LeCheile AC. I ran this race during my recovery and was hoping to finish in approx 20 minutes running by feel. I wasn't sure what to expect so soon after the 24-hr race but after 1K I felt good and stayed steady but didn't get carried away. Approaching 4K I decided to push a bit and then got caught in a race with another guy and we stayed with each other until the last 400M and I happily crossed the finish line in 18:07. Not a PB but better than expected and a sign that my recovery has gone well.
