I do all my training runs in the morning and even at the weekend I'm usually back in the house before 8am. I've always made a conscious effort to make sure it doesn't impact too much on family life but now the kids are getting older (but still young!) it does make it slightly easier. I'm a bit worried about the cross country that I've signed up for as it looks as if they are going to take up alot of Saturday afternoons and they aren't exactly just down the road either!
6 miles with 2 x (6 x 100M) for me this morning. I must look a right plonker sprinting down the same stretch of road over and over again! Hopefully none of the residents were up and looking out of their window at 6am! Have to say though that I quite enjoy these stride things even if I do probably look very silly.
Looking forward to a rest day tomorrow, then I need to decide whether to race the parkrun this weekend. Decisions, decisions....!
Westy - does your daughter wear earplugs? I have no idea if they work but may be worth a try?
8 miles this morning in the rain. Didn't feel guilty enough about yesterday to add an extra mile. Also binned the cycle to work. After getting very wet for the last 2 days didn't fancy another soaking.
Congratulations on all those who got PB's over the weekend. And to Chicksta for some smart running and Madbee for managing to have fun while running a marathon....!
Can someone please explain why my speed session this morning - 3x1k and 3x800M - was supposed to be 9 miles in total, whereas my mid week endurance run is only 8 miles? I don't understand why P&L have to make a hard session so long. I normally do a 2 mile warmup but I don't want to do a 3 mile cool down when I'm knackered. Surely 1 mile would have been long enough? In protest, I only did 8 miles in total so I guess my race is now doomed!
