Nice bike effort! Yeah some of them were so dopey I nearly had a few accidents!
Still can't get my head round how much training would be needed for a marathon! Read a really good post actually from founder of lets run, 28 min 10 km man and lad who paced Paula radcliffe to her 2:17 chicago WR years back. Laying out how much time it consumes day to day and the sacrifices about becoming pro etc
Home from the IOW yesterday and straight to Victorious festival, not normally my thing but had 4 free tickets so why not
Back late and up 7AM for the run, get it done!
Foot was sore but again eased off whilst running. Brought some plantar arch supports from amazon to see how they help (if at all) So far if I wore my night splint seemed to make things more tight. Was only a fiver and think the left arch just needs a bit of help..
Also booked in for massage tomorrow PM but may have to cancel depending on things as GFs mum has been in hospital since Saturday with Neutropenic sepsis but hopefully will be home so may have to run from here and give lifts
8 @ 6:49s this morning on the loop I have used alot, previously done the two 10 mile comparable loops here and today would have been faster had I carried on..
HR 143 for 75.2% again, Got hot in the rain jacket!
First 4 at 6:40s then dropped back and last mile nearer 7 but was turning up and down the road to make the mileage rather than run up till it hit 8 and walk back I was being silly.. Just under 54:30 minutes
Ends the month on roughly 300 miles - All time high. Coming off highest ever week too
Onwards and upwards things seem to be working for me at the moment.. Just sort this foot niggle but otherwise I think I'm operating well
Feeling good too as probably all of my morning runs even ones that haven't been till 9/10AM have been done with no food / breakfast. Getting used to it and 100% feel some adaptations have been made with using energy. Feeling a tad leaner.
Will do a full stats update when I get on my computer
