Training update – week beginning 24th July

The week started off well with a long run on Monday and fast run on Tuesday. Unfortunately I began to feel ill on Wednesday so had Wednesday and Thursday off. I felt bad about this as I also started eating more as well, to try to recover from the illness.

By Friday I was feeling better and went for a 3 miler. I arranged do the Woodhouse Moor Park Run on Saturday morning with my bud Ste who lives nearby. It was great fun and much easier than the Temple Newsam Park run. Easily beat my PB, but the route was a lot quicker (very flat). I was right on the shoulder of another runner for the last km and planned on overtaking on the final straight, but unfortunately he had a lot more left in his legs than me and left me for dead. I was a little bitter but glad he pulled me round for that final half km.

This morning I went running straight out of bed. Had no particular time in mind but ran about 5 miles in around 5 minutes, fairly pleasant but a couple of tough hills. Ready to get back in the saddle next week!
