Quick summary of my last two runs before we head off to Liverpool for the weekend.
Wednesday – easy lunch time run
I was able to run at lunchtime and did almost 6 miles around Pollok Park in slight drizzle
Thursday – Ben Lomond Run
It was a lovely evening last night so I was looking forward to being able to get to the top this week after last weeks shortened effort due to the road accident.
I worked fairly hard on the way up and made it in 1:12:07 feeling good. There was a little bit of cloud on the top but I didn’t hang around. I was keen to complete the loop in under 2hrs. My legs were feeling so much better than the last week or so on the down hill. They had a bit more spring to them whereas last week they felt very heavy and stiff.
My key words were light and nimble! I’m sure I was anything but light and nimble but it seemed to help.
It took me 44:06 on the way down which added up to 1:56:15 so well inside my 2hr aim. It was getting dark as I finished which gave a nice effect to my finishing photo!
We are planning to run the Princes parkrun in Liverpool tomorrow which will be my first parkrun other than Pollok. It will be interesting to see how much quicker I can go on a flatter course!
