Well my planned bike ride didn't go so well. Flat tyre after 25 mins - started to change the tube and realised that I didn't have my tyre levers with me. Then noticed that the actual tyre had a big tear in it so a new tube probably wouldn't have lasted long anyway. Support vehicle (wife) had to collect me. Did a 10 mile run instead.
Day off tomorrow since I'm taking my youngest lad off to uni. Landmark moment!
I'm sure that just long running wouldn't get me sharp enough, soon enough to get me to where I want to be. I've upped the quality dramatically and have coped (thanks to grass, tready and hoka combo). I'm prepared to give this campaign (albeit a short one) everything I have and I trust in your experience so will add in volume as and where I can alongside the quality sessions. Onwards!!
Good news on getting a clean bill of health Abbers.
MsE. - SMACKDOOOOOOWWWWWNNN!!!!
TR, that's a good reality check. I know I'm taking a liberty and I do have some longer runs planned (with quality) over the next 3 weeks - I'll supplement these with some extra time on feet runs as the body allows. Currently coping well so I'll push it a bit further until things creak.
Tonight's sesh was 1k easy, 2x5k at 20min pace off 1k easy then 400m at MP for fun. Bike and swim tomorrow!
