Well, I’ve made it through the first week of training. After the two shorter runs in the week a 30 mile bike ride yesterday and a 5 mile run today completed a fairly successful week. All targets were met, heel is still a bit sore but the slower I run the better it feels – which is a bit of a strange concept for me. Might have to stop wearing my watch when I run as I’m terrible for speeding up if I think my times seem a bit slow.
Had a nice ride 30 mile bike ride yesterday with a short tea stop. That’s the problem with riding past Salcey Forest Cafe – there’s always a cup of tea with my name on it!
The run today was a bit slower than I wanted but with plantar fasciits still causing problems beggars can’t be choosers so completing was good enough – bit of ice afterwards sorted it out. Off road seems to be the way to go so might have a go at the Wellingborough MT next week.
