7 Mile steady run

Wednesday 13th February 2019

I had a really good run today, I was trying to get a few hills in but could not fit the extra and keep within the 7 miles my training plan asks of me. I did manage to get one large hill in at about the 3 1/2 mile stage. This hill was really hard and fun, sweet was dripping off my head afterwards. I want to use this hill more often.

As usual I waited until I got to work to do my strength training, as a driver I spend most of the night sitting down so it’s really good for me to get some training done on my break.

So I have just under 20 minutes spare late evening so down goes my mat, off comes my shoes and I do a fantastic body weight workout. It takes me less than 10 minutes giving me just enough time to roll my mat up again and get a drink of water, my arms are feeling great for ages afterwards.

I do wonder what other people might think if they walked passed me when I am on the floor doing my planks etc lol

Todays run:

Have a great night all

50 Minute Tempo run

Tuesday 12th February 2019

Today was a fantastic day, It took a while to get my butt out the front door but when I started I really enjoyed myself.

I even got a good pace at times, better than I was aiming for.

I started with a 5 minute warm-up jog, this was easy to go slow as I had just started, I then jumped into a 20 minute steady run which was great, 5 minute slow run again, 15 minute steady run and finishing off with a 5 minute cool down jog then the walk home.

Wow it was so good to have a fun run after Sunday, I am looking forward to tomorrows run.
