This week’s long run was 10 miles. A big one as its double figures. I ran early alone near home so that i could see the start of the London Marathon on BBC. The morning was cold and it looked like rain but as ever, it warmed up during the run and I wondered why I wore the jacket. Even though I was looking forward to a long run, the first 5k was sluggish – I felt heavy and slow, however it did improve and as I turned for home after 7k I was feeling better. I must get the water situation for long runs sorted. I hadn’t much with me; just 500 ml of a mixture of OJ and water with some salt – God it was awful!
The week’s training went well as I got out 3 times for a 5k, a 12k and a 5k in that order. It’s amazing how a mid week run can feel better than one at the weekend. However, still on course with the marathon schedule. I now feel ok to tackle the Ballyliffin Coastal Run this Saturday 19th April.
Good luck with training this week
