And then it snowed again. However needs must, so I ran 20 miles in the snow. Thankfully it wasn't too bad and most of the paths were clear. However to be on the safe side I stuck to the park close to home and so, inevitably, ended up running around it 7 times which didn't actually feel as repetitive as I had feared. I felt a little wobbly and very tired once I was done (but that has been true the last three long runs and I think my knee is coping with them better as I go along) and, even though I had halved my intake of gels, I still had to rush into the loo once I got home. I think I will give the jelly babies another try for comparison purposes.

I had a visitor at work this week and so needed to journey to Liverpool every day. So the rest of my weekly runs were spent on a treadmill in the university gym. It is hard to say anything particularly interesting about treadmills, I can't even give an update on daytime telly because the jogging up and down makes it hard to read the subtitles. I think someone in the Liverpool area stole a beer keg using a baby's buggy.

KM run this week: 58.7
KM run in 2018: 447.4

While raising money for charity is not my motivation for participation, it is a big part of the London Marathon. Shelter have bribed me with a T-shirt and the promise of a post-race massage. People have been incredibly generous already, but you can donate here should you feel so inclined.
