I learned several things today:
- The ‘slow’ runners on club long-runs can comfortably maintain a 10 minute mile pace for 11 miles.
- 8 miles at a 10 minute mile pace makes my knee niggle flare up.
- Adopting a walk / run strategy when my knee has flared will allow me to carry on for at least another 3 miles.
- There is a distortion in the space-time continuum between the Robin Hood gate of Richmond Park and The Windmill at Wimbledon Common that rearranges paths and moves hills.
