I feel I’m recovering well after the White Rose Ultra. My plan for the last two months of the year is lots of easy runs with a few races thrown in for fun!
My first cross country race of the winter is on Saturday at Gourock for the Renfrewshire AAA’s. I’ve not run that course before so I’m looking forward to it.
I went out for a recovery run on Tuesday after work and felt okay. Tonight I decided to do my loops around Brodie Park. It was a wild night with high winds and driving rain for part of the run.
I was wanted to have a run in my Inov-8 Talons. The soles are perfect but the fabric has torn in a few places. I don’t do enough cross country to warrant buying a new pair so I bought some ‘incredibly strong Gorilla tape’ and it did the trick.
It held my shoes together so the run so I’ll be using that again on Saturday. £2.95 for the tape was a lot cheaper than a new pair of shoes!!
