A lovely, muddy 13k...πŸ™‚πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ

I can never decide these days, whether to post on this forum or the 'Marathon running and race support' forum - but many folks cross over between the two, so here I am!

I am just in the process of using Abi's great HM training plan to cobble together an individual plan that will work for me. My HM is on the 10th March. Today's plan was to head out for an 'easy' 13k. I am trying to develop a greater awareness of the importance of different pacing when training (again, thank you Abi for all the notes on your plans!πŸ™‚) and I was very mindful today of keeping to a pace where I could (had anyone else been aroundπŸ˜‚) have held a conversation....I don't know, does talking to sheep or singing along to 'Hamilton' count?! I suppose it does reallyπŸ™‚πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ Anyway, it was fab out running on my trails today - the rain had stopped but there was still mud and puddles aplenty and I ran through woodland, on paths, grass and along the old railway line which is now a public bridleway. I only get to run here at the weekends now that the evenings are dark so early but luckily I am also loving my pavement pounders, lit up by my chest light in the dark! So, run done (1:24:01) and muddy shoes now hosed, stuffed with paper and drying ready for their next outing. Happy running week, everyone.πŸ™‚

Sounds glorious my friend.. I wish I could have run it with you!

I start the plan tomorrow... going to have to tweak it a bit because of small runner care days...but I think it will work!

This is exciting....with a few of us all heading towards a HM... I look forward to your next post! xxxx

Sounds nice and soft underfoot, easy on the joints :D

New shoes christened or are you keeping them out of the mud?

Sounds like a great run Sandra. Talking to sheep definitely counts!

Sounds like a lovely run, Sandra 😊 I have been doing most of my runs on pavements lately due to the dark, looking forward to starting my version of roseabi's HM plan which will mean me running my long runs at weekends - yippee! Had to sacrifice most of my beloved park runs but really looking forward to getting off the beaten track - in daylight!

Good luck with your HM plan tweaking πŸ€—

Sounds wonderful Sandra! What did the sheep have to say in reply!? 😁

Sounds like you had a super run Sandra, 13k 😊...

Sorry to see you have been poorly since, as you were really enjoying your running and full of enthusiasm.

Hope its not long before you feel ready to don your runners and get back on your trails...

Get well soon 😊x
