On target for 80 miles in week 27?

After Sunday's very difficult run, I never managed to get out on Monday. Oops! It was important, therefore, that at least 13 miles were done today. I'm pleased to report that I managed a 4, 5 and 4 mile run all at a reasonable pace. In fact, the 5 mile run at lunchtime round the Race Course felt so easy compared to Sunday's hills session. And it was windy apparently. It was a small trickle of a breeze compared to the gusts in the Pennines on Sunday. 

Now I'm left with 14.1 miles to do each day for the next 4 days in order to reach the required 80 mile target. If I keep to the 00:08:30 - 00:09:00 minute mile pace that I did today then I've got a decent chance of success.
