  Before today's training  run  I thought I'd have a look at the LEEDS ABBEY DASH (9.30 start) as it passed through the 5K turn point at Kirkstall Abbey on a cool but pleasantly sunny Yorkshire autumn morning. 
 If  you ran the race check out how you looked after 5K in this 9 mins video....

The WINDMILL 10K on the front at Lytham  last Sunday left me quite jaded and I only notched up 20 miles from Monday to Friday.  

Nevertheless, I was very keen to maintain the year's average and that meant tackling a 7 on the undulating Strid trail  yesterday followed by a solid half marathon training run this Sunday morning to reach 40 miles for the week.
  The run, from Rodley on the Leeds Liverpool canal took me into Leeds and back; turning at the point where  the canalside bars and restaurants were preparing for their Sunday lunch business.   Quite a nice spot; very cosmopolitan.
 The splits fpr the 13.1 miles show the customary   acceleration throughout the run as far as the puddle strewn towpath and Sunday morning walkers would allow.  A 9.33 first mile..........7.50 for the 13th mile........a comfortable 1:52 overall.  
 Just might be looking for a half for the New year.
