Diary of a runner - 10 weeks to go
The past week has been good for running. The warm weather is welcome so a few training runs have taken place around mid day as the marathon and half marathon will start at 10.15am so it’s important to run in the heat as you would expect the end of August to be warm! I managed to run 7ml, 6x300m strides and 4ml over the past while with the last two Sundays seeing the long runs rising to 13ml and 15ml each week. Still feel good but, as I always do each year well before a marathon, had a appointment with my doctor to check bloods and general health. Unfortunately, he can do nothing for sore muscles and general wear and tear on the body!!
I hope your training is going well. With only 10 weeks to go the longer runs at the weekend take time so it earlier starts which are not so easy with the world cup on so late! However I hope all is going to plan but don’t be afraid to adjust and sometimes you can only do what you can.
Enjoy this week and the local 5k’s around the county
