    Is this longest run you did recently?

    I think best time for running early in the morning.

    Yes , my longest for a long time.
    And I definitely won't be doing it again. I've never much cared for running but when on holiday I don't have a rowing machine with me.
    2 miles is my normal run, I was doing 4 on holiday as it was my only exercise, don't know what possessed me to double up!
