Last weekend should have been 8 miles and 5 miles, but I was in the middle of a week-long migraine and had visiting relatives. So it wasn't, and between the migraine and the childminder's holiday I've not kept up the usual daily training.

But anyway today was

16 miles in 246:55 => 15.4 min/mile

I think that's the furthest I've ever walked in one go in my life. I did an Oxfam sponsored walk in 1998 or 1999 where I did 14 miles but I can't think of anything else comparable. Today also neatly slays the half-marathon ghost. I did a little happy dance in my head when I reckoned I was safely past 13.2 miles.

I walk a loop of 5.35 miles - the first two were ok, the last was much harder. The first two loops were done averaging more like 15.0 min/mile each, and the last loop rather slower. I begin to see why people talk about long-distance events as being won in the mind.

I'm trying the same approach to rehydration as last time ... so far it seems to be working.
