Marathon Training Run at Garmin Connect - Details
As preparation for the Loch Ness Marathon I decided todays long run should involve a few climbs as the Loch Ness route is best described as undulating, well for the first 8 miles it is and then a bugger of a climb at 17 miles. So todays route took me from Anniesland to Glenboig via Maryhill, Milngavie, Torrance, Kirky and Moodiesburn.
I did not want to carry anything today so planned a drink at Mugdock reservoir where they have finally fixed the drinking fountain, thank you Scottish water, and then a quick stop off in Lenzie at an offy (Off Licence) where a bottle of coke and a fudge refuelled me for the final 6 miles.
21.27 miles in 2hrs 33mins. Felt good at the end and even tried a cold bath to see if does aid recovery, shall find out in the morning on the recovery run.
