March has been a good month. After colds and awful weather at the beginning of the year I felt I finally got my teeth into running in 2017. Unless something goes badly wrong over the next 5 days I will finish March with my highest amount of mileage (about 104k), I got a PB for 10k, followed a week later by my longest distance of 11k, which a week later I topped again to reach 12k. I am consistently running 2x 5ks during the week non-stop and the last 6 weeks I have run over 20k consistently every week. So all in all a lot of good solid mileage which I'm not finding too tiring. My legs must be getting stronger, I found 100k in December pretty exhausting.
On the other hand my speeds are all over the place and there's no improvement on the shorter distances. A 5k is sometimes as tiring as a 10k and I'm not surprised if I plod round in 39 mins for 5k (I was faster at graduation over a year ago!).
Then again I managed to squeeze an easy 7km in this morning before we went out for the day. And that would have been impossible a year ago.
So a mixed bag - and still a lot of work ahead of me🏃👍😎
