Just two runs this week due to time constraints and likely the same next week as lots of travel. I did a mid week 5k on Wednesday and a 17.5k yesterday.
The 17.5k has left me pretty tired and led me to consider what I’m trying to do here. I got to 10K at the end of April and have upped things slowly since. But I’ve never entered any races and have no immediate plans to do so. So there isn’t really a clear reason to keep going longer, other than to see if I can.
Yesterday made me realise I’m probably at the limit of what I can do without more water and better planning (though a drop in temperature might get me to half marathon, just). I run early so I don’t eat beforehand (jelly babies every 20mins whilst running) - what kind of distance do you reckon is possible before breakfast fellow early morning runners?
I think I might step back now and focus on finding new routes. Part of the reason I chased distance originally was to have the range to get beyond the village. I reckon I have the range I need now so am going to focus on variety and new routes.
Which of course means you can expect my half marathon distance post in a few weeks 😂🤣😂
