Route: Paisley Canal (reverse)
Time Run: 38mins 14secs
Today I ran an easy 5mile run. Last year I mainly ran 4 times a week but I have decided this year to increase my weekly milage during Jan – Apr and add an extra run. I’m also running further on a Tuesday. So today was my extra run this week. I’m planning to do a longer off road run tomorrow so today was a gentle 5mile run. It was wet and a bit windy so I was wrapped up warmly! I ran without looking once at my watch and just tried to keep my breathing very easy. Considering I’ve ran 33miles in the last three days my legs felt fine and I finished feeling good …. wet but good.
After my comments about DOMS yesterday I posted the question on the whw race forum and already there have been some interesting comments. To have a look click here.
I have also heard back from William Sichel acknowledging my email and saying he will reply soon. I have also emailed Paul Murgatroyd who is a lecturer at Lincoln Uni who is doing research into training for ultras. Paul emailed back within an hour or two (thanks Paul) saying he is happy to help. He asked for some more background so I’ll answer his questions as soon as possible. I think Paul could be a really helpful helpful source of information. Watch this space!!
