Second and Sixth

Second long run of the week.
Sixth long run of this express marathon training program.
Felt pretty good tonight until the last 4km (of 27km)… I think I was running low on fuel. I didn’t eat or drink anything for the 2h14min of my run; the last few kilometres I was daydreaming about drinking and eating. That combined with the sudden onset of tiredness (on an otherwise easy run) would suggest that the problem was nutrition and not fitness related.

The left knee held up well today. I think I’ll risk one more week of double-longs and then put the focus on threshold after that.
Recovery first though.
