Review of Week 3

Quite a productive week on the training front. Stuck to the plan apart from Wednesday as I decided to do some stretching instead. The long Saturday run turned into a rather pleasant 9 mile jaunt along the canal in an effort to get an extra mile in before the week 4 recovery sessions. The long run was mostly along the canal towpath which didn’t resemble anything like a path – just mud and brambles which I managed to entangle myself in at one point. But, the hard work off the road bodes well as on my return to normal roads after 7 miles of canal the pace was much quicker and not too difficult. More off-roading to come methinks!

The long run was also made more interesting by the plethora of runners coming the opposite way – with numbers on. Looks like they were competing in the Ultra45 event and were running along the canal from Northampton to Tring – 45 miles! Makes my 9 miles pale into insignificance!

We took the bikes out on Sunday for about 35 miles but with the wind and continuous rolling hills it was a real struggle. Especially with the long run from the previous day still in my legs. I think for future weeks I’ll swap the long run and the bike around at the weekend as I don’t seem to suffer running after cycling as I do the other way round. Good job I don’t do duathlons as I’d be a bit rubbish!
