Bit of a funny week really. With the cold weather the training plan has gone out of the window a bit. I was supposed to do some speed work on Tuesday but with copious amounts of ice about decided to swap with the Thursday tempo session and run 5 miles. Except, I didn’t as after 30 minutes of trying to stay upright I gave it up as a bad job and went home. I decided that for the sake of avoiding broken bones giving up was the sensible option.
The swimming on Wednesday didn’t happen, as usual! So by Thursday regardless of the weather I was quite desperate to get out there. It was cold and large sections of redway in MK were frozen over but I ran quicker than I planned so was pleased with it despite the weather.
The weather didn’t improve much over the weekend so the bike didn’t happen, but I did complete the 14 mile long run. Having woken up on Saturday with a head cold it was a long hard slog, but got there in the end!
