I got back on top of things this week, with a 10 mile run on Monday. This was after 2 weeks of shorter 'long runs', so I was really pleased to get those miles done. It was no better than that though, as the speed was NOT good! I could only average 9.17 min miles, when I was managing around 9 min miles for the same distance before I caught a cold.
Anyway, I ran three more times in the week, all before breakfast, and totalled 20.7 miles for the week, so back to the twenties - yay!
On Tuesday afternoon I went for a little bike ride. My legs were tired after Monday's run, and it was windy, but it was a new route, and I enjoyed it. The rain just about held off until I got home, which made a nice change.

Less of that this week, as I've been feeling much fitter, but I have managed to watch a lot of the tennis. I follow Wimbledon on tv every year, and this year has been a belter. I'm typing this during a rain delay in the final - a men's final which includes a British player for the first time in 74 years. I love Andy Murray, and I really hope he does well, but Federer is a pretty formidable opponent. It's great to have a British player in the final at least. Come on Andy!
