I feel I’m back in the groove with my training and I’ve had a good start to the year.
Monday – Steady run
I had planned to go along to our club Fartlek session but Jo, Jono & Seth we’re calling in on the way from Wales to Inverness so I went out for a run at lunch time instead. My legs felt a bit heavy after my two weekend runs so maybe it was a good thing to have an easier run rather than a speed session!
Tuesday – no run but lots of running chat
Katrina, Cammie, Lesley and I drove over to Stirling to be part of the West Highland Way Inspiration night. It was a great evening with great speakers and lots of advice.
I recored the talks and have put them out as episodes 104 and 105 of the whwrace podcasts. If you want to listen to them go the West Highland Way Race website.
Wednesday – Tempo Run
I had a busy day at work so didn’t manage to get out at lunchtime so I set off in the dark at 5pm. I wanted to do some sort of Tempo run so opted for alternating easy/hard miles. I was feeling okay and this will give me a good bench mark for the next few months. Hopefully I will be able to run a little faster.
Thursday – Hill reps
I was able to run at lunchtime but the weather wasn’t great. To be fair I see off in the dry with some sunshine but half way through the snow started and I finished with the snow driving in my face as I ran back!
I wanted to recce a couple of options for future hill reps and found a couple of loops on the mountain bike trail which should be good.
I’m looking forward to trying them out properly over the next few weeks!
