Only completed 34.5 miles this week as some of my usual morning running slots were taken up with recovery sleeping after some late nights or early morning Christmas pudding making.
Following Tuesdays intervals I did an easy 5.2 "barefoot" run on wednesday morning - no niggles at all (so far so good) - 08:28 pace (No HR monitor)
Thursday - rest day. feeling tired. Abina got a 5 a.m. to make Christmas puddings before she went to work so I got up to give some assistance/encouragement.
Friday - 11.4 mile easy run @ 07:57 pace & 140 HR. Felt tired.
Saturday - 2.5 miles on the threadmill while I watched Ani & Saran @ their swimming lessons. Out until 3 a.m. at work party.
Sunday - 6.7 miles steady 07:20 pace @ 144 HR. - out until 2 a.m. at friends house party.
I started running shortly after my 40th birthday to train for the "once in a lifetime marathon" (mid-life crisis and all that) and haven't been able to stop since. This blog charts my progress as I attempt to go farther and faster than I have ever gone before.
