Going to do 3 mile tonight, i normally do 2 x 4 mile runs in the week and a LSR on a weekend but........ Im tired, i didnt sleep great last night, my legs ache from my last 2 runs and TBH i feel like just going home getting a shower and havin my tea and falling to sleep on the couch!  If i hadnt already missed so much training i would do what i want BUT with less than six weeks to go....

I will do just over 3 mile and a 8 1/2 mile on the weekend

I went out on Monday night to the pub and had a few pints.... and a late night for me!  It was touch and go if  i went out last night for my run.  In the end i did and thought i would do 2 mile and ended up doing 3mile with the last mile fast (for me), even thou it wasnt the normal 4mile i would of done i was pleased in the end i did the 3mile. 

Thursday's my next run...

have a rest day today with 13 on Friday

24/08/2012 at 17:47

Afternoon all

Perfect running weather down here today overcast and cool should have done 13 miles but for the first time in weeks the run felt easy

 i had already decided to run the route i use when training for Brighton as the first 9 miles takes you away from home which i thought was a good idea as i have struggled at the end of the last few runs and the route i normally use takes me to close to home and the temptation to knock it on the head if it was going badly would be to great

I got to mile 10 and as i still felt alright in myself instead of turning for home decided to run along the docks and come back that way thinking it was about the same distance which proved to b e a sight miss calculation on my part as by the time i got to the end of the docks i had done 11.5 and it was still about 2 miles from home

any way run was still feeling good buy the time i got to mile 13.5 but to get home from there meant going up a steep hill which to be honest i didn’t fancy so came back the slightly longer way through our local woods which is flatter and finishing at the bottom of a path that i use as a stopping point on my 8 miles runs as it leads up and out of the woods and comes out more or less at the bottom of my road i use the walk as a cool down

in the end i ended up doing 15 miles the whole thing took 2:27:14 with an Avg pace of 9:46 which i was pleased about as i was aiming to keep the pace in the 9,s hand one disappointing 11m/m don’t know what happen there

out with the O/H tomorrow to keep her company as she has 12 to do

26/08/2012 at 18:19

Evening all

Well what a wonderful day for a run just back after going out with the O/H on her LSR she had 11 to today so we decided to use our 3 mile loop around the docks as it a nice run with plenty of toilets available

we started off really well and she was maintaining the walk 5 run 5 that she intends to use for Brighton really well and so we decided that as the day was just about perfect and it was a bank holiday which meant plenty of rest time that we would try 13.1 miles as she running the Cricklade H/M in October to see if she could do the distance and give her that mental boost of knowing she could

happy to report the 13.1 miles was achieved in a time of 3:30:03 with an Avg pace of 15:5 m/m which is a vast improvement on last week’s 10 mile run which only had an Avg pace of 17:10 m/m and she managed to keep up her run 5 walk 5 all the time
