11 wet, cold, dark miserable miles

This was one of 3 attempts at an 11 mile run this week along the Derwent Walk Path to Shotley Bridge. The last 20 minutes were done in near darkness and in the pouring rain with a nice south westerly wind to round things off. I eventually got home, soaking wet after 1 hr and 52 minutes. This is still a respectable time given the conditions and the fact that I've not had a rest day for over a week.

For the purposes of continuing to experiment with energy drinks/gels I tried a gel supplement after 6 miles. The only thing this seemed to do for me was to make me feel very hungry 5 minutes after consuming it. I think I'll be trying my "magic powder" again on Wednesday's 11 mile run.
