On 4th March, instead of doing a longer run, I thought it would be a good idea to try the Lasswade 10 in order to incorporate a bit of 'speed work' into my marathon training schedule. I'd heard good things about this race, a scenic route, but undulating. I headed out with Gareth in the car and we drove the second half of the route to see what we had ahead of us.
Really enjoyed this course - a few tough hills, but certainly scenic with a sprinkling of snow on the Pentlands. I wanted to try and get below 70 minutes but was just outside in 70.14! Still a big PB though so can't complain and pleased that the marathon training is going well. 5th place for Gareth - another great run from him.
