Day 255 - A ruddy cold four miles

Type - Steady run

Distance - 4 miles

Time - 34 minutes and 20 seconds

Gosh, its cold. Really, suck your breath in and watch the vapour form as you blow out cold. Step outside the warm building and instantly feel the deep chill attack your body cold. Cold enough to make you really wonder why you have to go out and run four miles.

But I did. The marathon plan called for this to be done in around 36 minutes, and I tried to keep to a very slow pace but found that pacing at this speed is almost as difficult as running the quicker speeds. It will be one of the challenges for 2010 to manage to keep to the slower paces, but this will be essential to getting used to running at these speeds over the course of the marathon.
