Edinburgh Marathon 2006 Training– 21–01–06

I was really apprehensive of this run as I needed to run 9 miles; I'd never run anything more than 6 miles before.

Using routeplanner software, I found the following route to be pretty much 9 miles.

-Home to town via Camp Hill Road
-at the fountain, turn right and get onto Queen's Road
-follow Queen's Road to the end and go left past the Boro ground
-Keep on that road all the way up past Stockingford and the Round Towers all the way up to the Ansley village roundabout
-through Ansley village until Church End then take a right on the B4114
-follow the B4114 through Ansley Common and stop at the One Stop Shop near the Brett's Hall estate

This run took me 1hr 27min 44sec to complete so from this, I can assume that 26.2 miles will pretty much take 4.5 hours. Not great but I'm sure I'll see this figure come down.

At the end, I felt a little sore (especially around the knees and ankles) but I could have kept running indefinitely.

    Hi Adam,
    Just interested to know what route planning software you used?
    I'm recording my training sessions in minutes rather than miles at the moment because I can't be bothered with fiddling about with a map and string. Lazy I know!
