Any targets so far for Comrades Poacher? Or are you going to surprise us?
It was my boy's nativity play yesterday so I took the afternoon off to see that and did a tempo hill session before of 6miles which came out at 7:30 pace which was pleasing given that I've struggled around the same course much slower than that previously. I took him for ice cream at a nearby pub afterward and bought the Christmas tree. So Christmas is starting in my house from now.
Ran to the gym this lunchtime and did 30min of kettlebells before running some more with 2x1 mile a little bit faster and a little bit easier than 2 weeks ago, but still really closer to my 5mile pace.
My wife and kids are off to SA for 2weeks from Sunday, so I'm busy planning a mega training fortnight. Then try and get some longer runs in over over Christmas and New Year but drop the gym.
