Kilburn again

We had a lovely run on the sun-dappled Kilburn Woods route on Sunday morning. The run has everything; hills, flat stretches, great views, fairly easy paths and at 6 miles is long enough for a really good work out. There were some muddy patches after heavy overnight rain, some well disguised, but nothing too serious. It was fairly hot in the sunny patches but cooler with a welcome breeze under the trees.

I feel reasonably well prepared going into this week’s race, so let’s see whether my time bears this out.

I am pleased with my new trail shoes, Asics Gel Tambora. They seem to give good grip, are reasonably lightweight and have a little more spring than some. We have entered an autumn half marathon so they should get plenty of miles between now and then.
