The goal for today was 20k, but my legs started seriously aching around about 15k, and where I could have put in some extra looping down local residential streets to add in the extra distance, I decided to sod it and just go straight home.

I went from home, through Girton and Oakington, down the busway all the way to Milton Road (passing a [personal profile] naath heading the other way somewhere north of Histon), then back up the busway to the easy crossing to Northfield Avenue and then home down Carlton Way.

The Boundary Run is in two weeks, so that was my last long run before the event.  It's not as good as I'd have liked, but in mitigation, I have been ill and not running a lot of the last three weeks, and far from carb-loading, I'd spent a few days at my mother's where they mostly eat lean protein and veg and thus so did I.  My plan is to do a couple of short runs this week and next, a gentle5k next weekend, and to eat as much porridge, pasta and rice as I can bear the Thu-Sat before the big event.  Finishing is success, and I'm almost certain I can do it.
