Thanks for the encouragement before my long run. All went surprisingly well ! Ended up being 21 miles in 03:08:44 which is 8.59's. Got an easy week now !! Just a load of 8's. Even this Sunday then back up to 16 the week after.................Keeeep smilin'
Hello all, Not been on for a while so quick update. Did 16 last weekend in 9.06's, a couple of short runs in the week (6milers) then 18 this morning in 9.03's. Where I live the long runs are quite hilly so pleased with how its going (touchwood!!!).
Hydration; Before I went out today I drove to the 1/2 way point and stashed a bottle of sports drink in the hedge. Picked it up as I ran by later and hey presto, hydration on the move. Even tucked the empty bottle under my skins top to recycle when I got home.
Hiya Miggito, As luck would have it am taking High 5 Gels and that's what they are dishing out in Edinburgh. I got some with caffeine for a boost !! Still experimenting with the interval but maybe on the day will be 5, 10, 15, 20 and the next b4 i collapse !!
Hey Colin Lee 4, thanks for asking. The 8 on Tuesday went well, 8.24's. Went out to do similar this morning early (obviously too early!!!) and felt absolutely knackered ! Cut it short and just made it a slower 6 so am rested for the 16 this Saturday.
So glad the weather is getting better and looking forward to running in daylight after work
