This week was a quiet and uneventful week for me.  I got all my training runs in and spent a fair amount of time worrying about every niggle I felt throughout the week.  At this point in training I’m bound to have some, I know.  I have stepped up the Epsom salt baths, stretching and foam rolling.

Run 1: 4.5 miles tempo run on the treadmill.

I felt this run went well, and I was happy with it.

 

Run 2: 4.5 miles

Not much to say about this, other than I could have kept a more steady pace.

Run 3: 3 miles

Bleh, too slow.


 

Run 4: 12 miles

12 miles is long.  It’s long enough that I actually ended up in Rutherglen!  That was a bit of a surprise! I was still terribly slow and that is something I definitely need to work on the rest of this month, but I am hopeful that the adrenaline and excitement of the race will help me pick up the pace.  I’d like to have a significant PR this time around.

But 12 miles is long and I think I definitely need to work on pre-long run fuelling as I felt that I could have had more energy overall.
