Mon 20/10 pm 9.6M Relaxed inc 8 x 30 seconds fast. Some surprisingly good speed tonight which bodes well!
Well recovered now after Cardiff although my left calf has still been causing me a few issues so not quite a full week’s training.
Mon 13/10 pm 9.6M Steady.
With Cardiff being my short term target race & coming off a few tough weeks this was always planned to be a second easier week before pushing on with 4-5 quality weeks for Leeds Abbey Dash on 16th November.
Mon 6/10 am 8.8M Easy, inc second half with Jo. Weather was brutal but we proudly ran around the various parks of Cardiff with our race t-shirts on undoubtedly looking pretty daft! Afterwards I ran to the butchers for bacon, sausage & egg & then to the bakers for a couple of cobs before heading back to the apartment & rustling up a couple of fine cobs for brunch!

So the short block of 6 week’s training since getting back off holiday was done & it was time to see where I’d managed to get my fitness to! My PB was 68:08 from Hinckley 2013 when I was in good shape but in between marathons so I expected a PB today. Continue reading
Mon 29/09 pm 8.5M Easy. Very easy start with Jo, then a bit faster for second half with James Douglas from Charnwood. Felt good, breathing easy & no sign of effort yesterday. Continue reading
Mon 22/9 pm 9.5M Relaxed, inc 8 x 20 sec fast strides. Rest this morning as tired after not sleeping properly over the weekend. Felt good during run, reasonable speed on strides without working hard.
Tues 23/9 am 50mins ski, pm 12.4M inc session. 15min tempo at HM effort, straight into 6 x 1K reps off 2min recovery. Kept the tempo at HM effort rather than pace. 1K reps around 3mins each as planned with some slightly slower due to road crossings etc. All felt controlled. Legs were twitching at night though!!
