Lovely day out, a tad cold, but the sunshine was a welcome addition to this run.
Ran a new route, still next to the sea, but further north and a part I have never been to before, it was great to look across the sea to the wind farms out at sea and the snow top hills at Barrow-in-Furnish - I assume from the map, but can't be definitely, anyway it was lovely view.
I'm recording the following in hope that I will stick to the changes in my training plan!
I've had a bit of a niggle this week in my Hip Flexor (it's amazing what you learn about you body with this running malarky) I think this niggle has been brought on in my Tempo run where I was trying to get a PB and I feel like I pushed it too much. I felt the niggle before going out and then it started again at 6 or 7K mark, which triggered achey calves, knees and shoulders, nothing serious, will disappear today.
So a change to the training plan (I think) for the next month, I'm going to try and increase the distance of my short runs in the week, rather than increasing my weekend long easy run. In effect increase weekly mileage, but not the distance i can run in one go. Also I think for the next couple of weeks I'm going to keep my pace light and easy and help run out this niggle, before reintroducing tempo and pyramid runs.
Looking forward to a 5K run on Sunday for the start of 5 x 50 challenge and also a few bicycle rides that will invariably be added to the mix to get my 5Ks in on none running days.
Enjoy your Easter runs
Garmin stats for those interested.
I can definitely see where my pace increased at the end when i was listening to my music rather than audiofuel.
