Ran 23KM (14.3M) today prepping for the Reading Half Marathon. At half marathon distance beat my previous time of 1hr 55mins with a time of 1hr 53mins. The core training is definitely helping. No apparent injuries. Shoulder felt sore during the run though.
Of interest is the route which illustrates why London is a very cool place to do sport. It is possible when running this long route to run from Earl’s Court to the Wandsworth Bridge along the river, then weave back down north to south bank of the Thames over bridges (to include buzzing MI6), cut up right under Big Ben to the Horse Guards then by Buckingham Palace to Kensington Palace and back to Earls Court. It is a run route that incorporates most of the great tourist sites of London.
