My running week consisted of a decent 10k on Monday in 1hr 1min 33sec, as some of you may know those poor souls who have nothing better to do than to read my drivel, I am aiming for as close to a sub hour 10k by the end of May, well it seems that I am not far off. I seem to have an issue with kilometre 5 and 6 where I slow down a bit but then seem to be able to pick the pace up again in km's 8 and 9. The slowing down however does have an impact so if I can keep my pace going I don't think I will be that far from the goal. Other than that Intervals went really well on Wednesday with my overall pace getting a bit faster. That's where the good news ends. Thursday I do a Brick session in preparation for my Triathlon and that was just awful. The cycling was hard and the running was the worst run I have had since I started running, I couldn't get into a rhythm my calves hurt, my lungs were bursting and I was running slower than I ever have. So in light of that I took todays run off, still visited the gym and have a long bike ride tomorrow. So we will see if that helps. I am very wary of not overtraining so I don't think a missed session will impact on my overall training.
Until next week I hope that you all stay well and keep on running!
