Really tried to push more today after Sunday’s long run, speed is something that I really need to work on this year and I am hoping I can really get used to running at pace. Will be a nice pace on the way home today.
Nice run home after the fast one in.
Feeling really good still after the run into work and so attacked the run home.
Feeling quite good from doing the long miles and so really pushed it today on the way to work.
So due to this time of year and the fact I would be staying down for the night. I thought it would be ideal to combine a little run whilst being in London, plan was to run the finishing part of the marathon to see what the contrast would be like.
So during the works Christmas party I made sure not to go OTT and to get to bed early. This part of the plan worked and waking up at around 7am and getting ready also went well. What didn’t go well was getting a little lost and in the process ending up running 10k, but hey all part of the fun.
As you can see I went a little lower than had planned but made it work back to the hotel and still got in the end part of the marathon which was the main goal, it was great to run in a different area and I also ran in my new Asics trainers which I will be using for the London Marathon aswell a win, win.
Ok it seems that when I have a long break, longer than say a day or 2 I feel a lot stronger when returning to the running.
Sometimes its not that I don’t want to run, just that life gets in the way sometimes and you have to adapt but when it does get in the way and I return to a run I really do feel stronger. Proves that a good rest is very good for recovery!
