My right foot and the blister

Thursdays run was a 40 minute tempo run which was hard but fun, I managed to cover over 5 miles so that was good.

Friday was a no train day so I took the opportunely to get a trip in to the recycling centre to get rid of some long overdue rubbish that was building up in my garden, My dad had the same idea so he half filled up his car with his stuff and we loaded my stuff in as well, Only one vehicle needed and great company and now a clean garden 🙂

Yep Sunday I got a lovely blister on my right foot. I was running a 10k training race, just after mile 5 I felt my sock crease up in my trainer, I was too close to finishing to stop so carried on and finished. All my good dri fit socks were in the wash so I was wearing normal sports socks so I only have myself to blame but I did manage get a PB for my effort at just over 45 minutes.

  • Distance 6.41 mi
  • Pace 7:19 /mi
  • Time 46m 56s
  • Best estimated 10k effort (45:18)

Only 7 weeks left until I run my marathon. One of the rules to the LUNAR-Tic-River-Marathon is that I have to carry a first aid kit with me at all times so I did experiment on Sundays run with clipping a kit to my belt. I forgot it was there when running so I don’t think it will be a problem, Not sure if I should get a smaller kit? No room in rucksack as I have a waterproof jacket in there.

A few weeks ago I booked two nights camping at a local campsite (I only stay for 1 night but I don’t have to checkout early in the morning this way). We have had such lovely weather recently and this campsite was only a 30 minute motorcycle ride away. I had booked it for tonight and tomorrow night, I have been looking forward to this ever since but the problem is that today it is pouring down with rain and tomorrow is not going to be much better. Unless the rain drastically clears up I will probably have to cancel, Will be no fun getting soaked trying to put my tent up 😦

I am off to get another coffee, Have a great day.

Half Marathon PB

I am so pleased with myself today as I completed a half marathon with another PB.

I know speed is not everything and when my long runs get longer I will be aiming for distance rather than speed but I am still like a excited child at getting a new PB 🙂
