How's it all going? Give us the gossip in the comments 😊😊😊
I am coming to the end of my half marathon plan with Garmin Coach Jeff Galloway, which has given me some crazy 800m speed repeats workouts (I'm getting SIXTEEN INTERVALS this week!!!), and some bizarrely long runs (I got 31.5 KM last week!!!). What is Jeff trying to do to me?
Anyway, I don't really mind. I haven't actually got an official half marathon until Oxford in October, but I do have the hilly Grand Tour of Skiddaw ultramarathon in August, so I have been making the most of my long runs up on the South Downs. There aren't many finer things in life I reckon!
It does occur to me, though, that my South Downs runs, lovely as they are, do not come close to the elevation I'll encounter up in the English Lake District. So I've been considering some big hill repeat sessions, and pushing harder uphill. And a few Freddie Mercury poses at the end will obviously be a great help 😁 (why no Freddie emoji??)
Are you wondering how you're going to tackle a project at the moment? Any other ideas for me? Do you love hills? I do!
As always, if you're new here, or just browsing through the community posts, this is a great place to introduce yourself and let us know how you are doing. You’ll find plenty of support and knowledge from your fellow runners here.
And have a fabulous week!
