Failing to prepare for London

stats of the week: run 24 km, cycled 234 km
stats of the previous week: run 13 km, cycled 46 km
stats of the week before: run 14 km, cycled 124 km

Building up my mileage was interrupted by an infection that kept me resting for a week. Now I aim to do just one longish run of more than 20 km to get somewhat fit for the London Marathon. The plan is to finish the marathon by jogging 5 km each followed by a short rest and some minutes of walking. This hopefully will enable me to get to the finish line at sub 5 hours. Last year this worked fairly well.

This weekend's highlight was a bike tour from our French home at Mollans sur Ouvèze to the Ardèche Gorge and back the next day.
