This seems to be my life at the moment…
Here it is:
I get the train home at Slough but working on a nice route back into town maybe through Old Windsor, Runnymeade and back.
100k - Done
5K in the midday sun.
"feeling HOT HOT HOT"
Attempting to run at 5min/k. Sweating, thumping, pain.
Tempo running is excruciating and depressing as I am awful, but I am loving the challenge of trying to get faster over 5k.
In preparation for the Rapha #Womens100 I did the London to Slough ride again. It’s 40 flat miles and makes a change form Richmond Park laps. I took it easy in the heat and stopped a couple of times for drinks, being a tourist and a cheeky mint aero. On the whole the route is great if a little bumpy at times. My wrists were a little tender by the end of it. I miss my aero bars.
I took the scenic route through the Great Park this time. I really should try and explore this area more as it’s full of fast, rolling, traffic free roads for miles.
