My mind was still stuck in the weather of a few weeks ago. I came out in plenty of layers and a hat, to find it quite mild (note to check weather the night before!) First lap of the park was quite tough, we managed it in 60 minutes, then my two friends deserted me and left me to do the second lap on my own. Without their motivation I managed the second lap in 66 minutes. So a nice 15miles at 8:50 m/m pace. I will blame the strong wind coming down Richmond Hill towards Roehampton.
All in all, a satisfying day, although I still wasn't first out - that honour goes to pingpong. There is always next week.
