Shades - Legs are ok slight tightness in my lower right calf but that started feeling tight at about 5 miles but it isn't painful will stretch it out. Will head out later with the family for a cycle so more exercise..
i woke up this morning with the "not in the mood to run" attitude but after breakfast i got ready and went out and after 5 min i was glad i did. In the end i did 21.3 miles which i was really pleased with. I tried a new hydration formula. Normally i have my camelbak on with just water and i keep a couple of gels in my waist pouch but this time i filled my camelbak with 500ml water, a sports lucozade and a gel and it certainly did the trick. At no point did i feel excessively tired although i was glad to get home.
Shades - I know putting miles in the bank is necessary but how would doing limited mileage effect training..The training for chester has difficult so i have only been averaging around 25 - 30 miles a week most of which are done at the weekend (LSR) Todays 21.3 miles was done in 2:44:20 and it did feel slowish but comfortable..is upping the weekly milage all that important or is my cycling helping me.
Mamafox - I didn't consider 10 miles on flat ground a tough cycle for my son but that might be me basing it on my ability. I'll take him out on shorter runs till I know he can keep up..
Shades - I guess it's a good thing my OH loves me and the promise of relaxing in a spa helps.
Next Sunday I have organised a fundraising event for myself to help with my charity cycle end of September. I'll be setting up a static bike station with a turbo trainer, (outside the BHF store) and with help from a local bike shop who will donate the equipment for free advertising, I'll be on the bike from store open to store closing. Thankfully its Sunday hours but that would have to replace my LSR for that day.
I still have the "Shadies Runners" banner I made for the london marathon last year , my OH could wait at the finish somewhere with it visible so we can all meet there. I am definitely up for a "pasta party" of sorts the evening prior to the race.
