Now that I have finished the 10k training programme and ran the race, I decided I would fill in the 3 weeks before we go to the US by doing only easy running except for one hard parkrun day and adopt the 80/20 philosophy . I was going to run 5 days , each 5k with one being a parkrun. However we have been camped in a beachside location which is very scenic so I finished up running 6 of the days of the week. I probably broke a couple of rules in doing so but I feel quite good. I will probably go back to 5 days next week in my usual urban environment.
The parkrun was a bit tough with a turnaround point on top of a 50 metre high hill featuring a lighthouse. I decided I would forego rest early this morning to take another final 5k up there and back for some pics. They say that you should have a purpose for every run.
