I trained quite hard for a 10K race up until the end of March - using a Jack Daniels plan and sticking to his training paces. I finished up quite fit for that and was surprised at the time that I did the 10 K's in. For the next 3 weeks of April, I just ran easy and slow - and after that in May , my runs were very spasmodic as we were travelling and those I did were also slow and easy. For the past 3 weeks , still travelling, I admitted defeat and did virtually nothing - a few easy and very short runs
So - now I am back home - have put on a couple of KG's!! - recovering also from a head cold - have done 3x5K runs since my return and I am doing it tough!! It is also very humid here at the moment - 93%RH - although not so hot, only around 17C in the morning.
I know I will get it back in time - I am just amazed at how much you can lose over a couple of months.
