Review of Week 4

Bit of a quiet week really. This was a recovery week where the mileage is reduced and give the body a bit of a rest.

The Tuesday speed session was a bit of a test for my new watch and I’m not sure it worked that well! But until I’ve read up a bit more I’m not sure whether it was user inefficiencies or too high expectations of base model! I’ll reserve judgement for the time being, although with another speed session this Tuesday, I’d better get reading…

The training plan had a 3 mile tempo run for Wednesday so the Run for Nothing 5km at Willen Lake was a perfect way to get the miles in at a good speed. Not a bad result, time was better than I thought it would be and I bagged the second lady spot. Wasn’t banking on the force 9 gale blowing across the North lake though – brrr!

Had a good 30 miles on the bike on Saturday, felt so much better than last week and the average speed agreed – guess last week was a bit of a blip. I enjoyed the long run today – ran a route that I used to years ago along the river and the canal. Saw quite a few other runners about although I think I scared the life out of one woman as I overtook her by the river – that’ll teach her to wear an iPod. It was such a peaceful morning seems a shame she was blocking it out with music – each to their own though.
