Juneathon day 18/30 - Trying a run/walk strategy

I plan to complete the Croydon Ultra the same way I ran the Wales Marathon last year - with a 9 minute jog and 1 minute walk pattern. I haven't been completing any long runs lately so I shouldn't attempt 30 miles straight.

I decided to practice on the way home today, a lovely run down by the Thames, through Putney, over Wimbledon Common, through the village, and down to home. Sunny all the way, everyone out and smiling - a lovely run!

Garmin Connect still wonky, run drawn using the wonderful Pixelmator app

So a longer run today, planning on the same run back in to work tomorrow to get a bit of "back to back" run action, then a fast parkrun on Saturday and a proper long run on Sunday - I'm intending to do a lap of the ultra course, not run 15 miles for a long time!

Today's 16.76km is my longest Juneathon run yet, in a relaxed and sustainable 1:47:09. I'm hoping to complete Sunday's lap in around 3 hours. We'll see!

My Juneathon totals: 18 runs for 129.82km in 13:23:07
