Another mixed week. Still fighting the cold lurgy thingy but things are looking up. A gentle five miler on Tuesday got some confidence back in the system (the doubts were starting to creep in). Raced twice on Wednesday. A quick 1.1 mile leg of the OU relay and even managed to make it on the ‘All Time List’ – just! This was followed by a 5km race in the evening – part of the Race Timing Systems ‘Run for Nothing‘ series. My time was just as quick as the previous one in the series so looks as if the form hasn’t deserted me just yet.
On Thursday I had a six mile tempo down. It started well, but about four miles in the races the previous day and the lack of training over the last few weeks started to take its toll and the tempo turned into an easy jog, but at this stage I think miles are more important than pace so was quite happy and it was a lovely day for a run around Caldecotte Lake.
That just left the Milton Keynes Half-Marathon on Sunday and overall, taking the rocky build up into account was pleased with the outcome but I wont go on about that here as I’ve already posted a race report here.
