I have also had to shuffle my week around this week. Big runs planned for Thursday and Sunday but i have a xmas party wednesday night and a meal and drinks at a friends on Saturday night so there was no way either of those were happening!! Instead Wednesday has become thursdays run, friday is saturdays and Saturday is Sundays!
So today was a 13k GA run which i split into two. 7.5k toddle to work and then 6k at lunch. Thighs are slowly getting back to normal, stupidly i know im on the cusp of overdoing it though but i need to try and get the volume back up
16k GA tomorrow so a similar 10-6 split planned to today.
Off shopping for trainers myself on Saturday as a xmas present from the other half. No idea what to get, something that will cope with the mileage but i generally go with whatever feels nice when i try them all on. Currently have Brooks ghost 6s which have been decent. Never had a rub/blister yet.
First long run done here too, 19k. Last 5 or 6 the thighs were sore, to be expected after little over a month doing pretty much nothing. glad its in the bag though and looking forward to attacking training next week. Was a lovely morning for it too.
Another marathon talk listener here, really enjoy the laid back approach to the show. They also brought out a nice looking hoodie yesterday http://www.sweatshop.co.uk/adidas-marathon-talk-men-s-hollow-fleece-hoodie-blue-beauty.html
Went out for my delayed 13k LT run this morning and felt terrible. I'm definately not right, my HR was sky high even just doing the warm up, even though before i went out my resting HR was fine. Spent half the night awake with hot sweats again I think im going to abandon the rest of this week and just start on week 2 assuming whatever i has clears and doesnt end up with another round of anti-biotics for a chest infection (happened twice in 3 years now!)
I still managed 12k GA this morning but that will probably be me for the week
