Early Morning Wheathampstead (again)

Back on a training course for work this week so it was out of the door at 6:15 for a dash down to Wheathampstead and back following the official Harpenden Running Fource 5.2 Mile Handicap route. This time went the right way through Wheathampstead which, for what it's worth, cut 0.04 miles off the distance compared with my previous running.

First few miles where dispatched at a reasonably healthy tempo pace, but faded badly towards the end. However, in the end what mattered most was I'd burned enough energy to allow me to stuff my face with around 500 calories worth of yummy cake at break time during the training course.
