17th July 2014 - 37 days to go
Just when you’re doing great and feeling great, you get hit with a weekend summer sniffle! That affected the long run on Sunday last so like life you adjust and adapt. The summer cold came upon me after a great week’s training which included 9K, 8x 300m strides and a 14k runs. Delighted with that but on Friday night the runny nose started and while treated with carrageen and elderflower tea I was unable to run the 35 as planned. The long run was postponed until Wed 16th so 7am in Letterkenny saw me run 30k in rain and heat. I was delighted with that but sore left calf muscle and right knee – time for ice
Plan until end of July is two 35k runs – going to be tough!!! For August it’ll be the DMcD 15k on Bank Holiday weekend and two 10k along with three mid week runs each week.
Good luck with your training this week and the 5k’s! Getting there!!!
