My wife Karen has also signed up to do the Great Manchester Run for the Isaiah Trust.
Karen hasn't run 6 miles yet and really wanted to before the big day so having planned a route on Map My Run we set out on seven mile run but with a clear point where we'd hit six miles and perhaps walk back from there.
Ran up through Sandbach to the Romping Donkey in Hassall, around Malkins Bank golf course and picked up the Wheelock rail trail completing a non stop six mile run in 58 minutes and continuing the 7 mile run back to our home in 1 hour 10 minutes.
Quite a gentle pace but felt excellent afterwards and good for Karen to know she can run the 10km in under her target time of an hour. :-)
