Another 10 miler

Another 10 miles for me today - and unlike Monday where I ran alone and then ended up stranded, I headed out with good running friends Nick and Yvette. Nick plotted a really lovely route from Coxheath, through Linton to Wierton and Boughton, and we managed a reasonable pace (they even waited for me to get up the horrible hills that are so unavoidable round here).

We stopped briefly for a chat with a group of runners we saw at a junction, and made 10 miles in about 1 hour 45 which I was happy with. I also tried some post-run protein shake today and so far so good - my legs feel pretty good at the moment, so even if the effect is largely psychological, it is working for me!

These are the other runners we saw - they are a group called Maidstone Selfie Sunday Runners - I swiped this photo from their Twitter feed (if any of you are reading this and want the photo gone, pm me via twitter or faceboook!). They ran on down the road we had just come up and visited their goat at the goat sanctuary. Love it! Wonder if I can incorporate goat visits into my Marathon training....hmmmmmmm......

As always, if you would like to donate to the wonderful Children with Cancer UK charity that I am running for, here is the link:
