I had the day off work today, so I was able to do a 3-mile easy-paced run around my local park. I forgot my watch, so I had to use Strava on my phone to record. The pace I was going at didn’t feel anything quicker than 8:30.
Today was a rest day. It should have been yesterday, but I switched Monday and Tuesday around.
Four miles home at an easy pace.
Today’s session was a hill session. Two miles at a warm-up pace. 400m hard/400m easy up and down a hill x3. One mile cool-down pace.
I don’t normally have the energy after work to do hill sessions or track sessions, so this is a HUGE step in the right direction for me.
Rest day today.
No run today as I had to stay in for the council to send someone around to conduct a gas safety check.
Seven miles at an easy pace. This is the longest run I’ve done in a while outside of a race.
A much better week this week. I was so chuffed with myself at doing a hill session after work that I frightened a couple when I yelled at the top of my voice.
