Last night Katrina and I were invited to an evening with Haile Gebreselassie. It was really good as Haile answered various questions and was happy to pose for photos afterwards. So we got a lovely photo with the great man …
This morning I was out for a steady run before I had my swimming lessons. I set off at 7.30am in light rain. I wore a jacket and was glad I did as it was pretty wet. I had a good solid run and I’m really pleased with how I’ve recovered from the Hardmoors 60 two weeks ago.
But I would also like to do some more speed work so my rough weekly plan until the end of the year is as follows …
- Monday – Fartlek session with Kilbarchan. I’ve only been once this year in January so it will be good to be back running a bit quicker again
- Wednesday – Tempo or Steady Run
- Thursday – Hill or Easy Run
- Saturday – Slightly longer run (8-12miles)
So that should give me between 25-30miles a week so that will be enough to see me to 2014 miles for the year.
We have a number of club races over Christmas and New Year so I hope to take part in as many of those as I can this year. The last couple of years I have had a few small niggles so decided against running them to save myself for the ultras.
