Stoptober Day 20 - Queen - Friends will be friends

'When you're in need of love they give you care and attention' - Mercury & Deacon

Day 20 of my Stoptober Challenge took me to Peterborough today on one of the sunniest and hottest September days, I can ever remember.

Clocking in an early parkrun really helped and these 196 mile training weeks are helping as I knocked some more seconds off last weeks and did 24:15 which I'm very pleased about, which isn't far off my 22.45 Pb.

It felt very easy actually and it was a break for my body to run at speed for 5km rather than my usual #Stoptober slower pace.

Having my friend Chris to run with me also helped today and luckily he's also running with me tomorrow too.

Peterborough proved to be a wonderful place to run and the Cathedral is well worth a well as Longthorpe Tower, which was used by The Home Guard during WW2.'

I'm looking forward to running in Norwich tomorrow and a nice curry to celebrate Chris's Birthday tonight...

So more tomorrow... - The UK's Leading ULTRAmarathon Coaches.

  1. Go Rory! Glad heart rate, feet and legs are all holding up.

    What a fantastic trip - looks like a great way to get fit, catch up with family and friends, take in some cultural sights (although I might skip a few of those football stadiums...)
