Thur 7th Feb
No run today as I had to get up even earlier (0515hrs) than my usual running time to catch the early flight to Dublin for work.
Fri 8th Feb
8.6 Miles in 01:05:14 (07:35 pace @ 142 HR) with 4 x 2 min @ 3k pace in the first 4 miles. (turned out slightly faster @ 05:30 to 05:40 pace). Felt tired at start but felt stronger once the fast reps were over. These fartlek runs will be replaced by 1 mile intervals @ 10k pace over the coming weeks.
Went to physio before work - no issues. May do a few km on the treadmill this evening.
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.
