Diary of a Runner
7th July 2014 – 49 days to go!!
I’ve been on two weeks hols but the running has continued. The focus these weeks to the end of July is training during the week to ensure that the long runs at the weekend are doable!! The past fortnight has seen 2 x 30mins runs and a 5ml and 10ml runs with long runs of 26K and 30k. Delighted with this as I felt I could keep going after the longer runs. The mind is now turning to diet over the next 6 weeks – looking at green veggies, liver and red meat and then pasta and chicken. Also looking at avoiding injury so even watching how I get in and out of the car. Sounds silly but the recovery from the longer runs takes longer now so have to watch how I go in between training. The plan now is two 35k runs and a 30k run before the Danny McDaid 15k race on 3rd August which is placed well in the wind down from training
Hope you are doing well with your training so enjoy the journey and the 5 & 10k races this week
