Mon 28th Jan
- Scheduled Rest Day. Start of a head cold, tried to avert it with hot whiskey's on monday night (Jameson 12 year old - went down too well), took too many and ended up tuesday morning (4 a.m.) with a worse cold and a hangover.
Tue 29th Jan
-Unscheduled rest day. Felt absolutely miserable at work. Took more conventional medicine on tuesday night - slept well.
Wed 30th Jan
-2nd Unscheduled Rest Day and stayed out of work to knock this thing on the head.
I wonder is this the central governor's way of avoiding this mornings 8 x 2 min hill repetitions.
Next week sees the last of these with 5 x 2 min reps (cut-back week). Then it's into the 400m interval stage for the next 4 weeks in preparation for my programmed 5k race/time trial on the 8th/9th March (I can't find a 5k race nearby and I don't like the idea of a time trial - the measurement could be out and if I get under 19:20 I can hardly call it a PB)
Hopefully I will get out tomorrow for an easy run.
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.
