I hope you all had a fab weekend of running, relaxing or adventure. I know a lot of people are back to work this week as it was schools half term last week. I was a bit slack at the weekend with running, I did want to go out for a 10 mile run but instead ended up going to a neighbours party on Saturday, drank lots of bubbly and spent most of Sunday in front of the TV. Whoops!
My new running shoes arrived last week – I’ve got myself a pair of Brooks Glycerin 13’s. The last model I owned was the 11, so I am hoping it isn’t too much of a change. They feel super springy and comfy whilst wandering about the house in them. Boing, boing!
As I’ve got a new pair of shoes to break in, it only seemed right to sign up to some races and get some well-needed goals in place. Due to the lack of running on Sunday, I signed up to a few races in March – Eastbourne Half, Tempest 10 and Hastings Half. So thats three races in three weeks…
Two of these are new races for me – Eastbourne and Tempest. Hastings will be the third time I’ve run it, so hopefully I can knock off a few minutes from last time.
Training this week
The plan is to get in three to four runs this week..
- Monday – 5 miles (wasn’t a great run)
- Tuesday – track session – 6 sets of 8 x 3.5 Mins (Alternating pace 10K /Threshold ) ( 90 rec. )
- Thursday – Social club run (usually hills are involved!)
- Sat / Sun – Long run (ideally 10 miles)
What have you got in store this week?
