Marathon training hasn't gone quite to plan this week. Had a few slow runs on Wednesday and Thursday when I felt cold, sweaty and headachey so decided to have a few days rest. Complete rest on Friday (apart from work!) but Saturday I walked up the Pyg Track to the summit of Snowdon then back down the Miners' Path. My friend Jane accompanied me again along with her daughter Emma, aged 13, who has got fantastic stamina; she led the way to the top despite this being her first walk up Snowdon. As usual visibility was poor on the summit but the sun shone for part of the day. Saw my first Wheatears of the year, a singing male serenading his drabber mate on the lower slopes. Also a few Redpolls flew over near the car park. No sign of any Ravens which were so vocal on our last visit.
Ran 22 miles today (Sunday), started slow 7.30 min/mile pace then picked up the pace at mile 16 to 6.50 pace and below. Entertained by the large numbers of motorbikes taking part in the annual Easter egg run that starts on the prom in Wallasey.

Me, before being enveloped by the cloud.
