Review of Week 13

This week was probably the best full week of training I’ve done – in fact I think it was the only week I’ve actually completed everything I had planned – better late than never eh!

The Tuesday hill session was great, although I left it a bit late to go out, even though the clocks went forward, it was a bit dark as I was finishing but as it was going well seemed a shame to stop. On Wednesday I raced, but before I ran a couple of miles just to make sure my legs were warm as I’m paranoid about pulling anything now, plus I don’t seem to get going until a few miles into a 5km so thought it would be a good start. I enjoyed the race. It was nice to run in daylight and ran my fastest 5km since last June so the legs are getting quicker. Sub-23 is so close…

As I’d done a tough hill session on Tuesday and then raced on Wednesday I decided to just run a gentle 6-7 miles on Thursday. But again left it a bit late to go out and it was dark for the last few miles, not necessarily a problem if you live in a town, but as I was out in the lanes it was a bit of a dodgy last few miles avoiding the odd car and trying to ensure I didn’t fall down unseen pot holes! I had my red flashing arm band to warn others I was there but wasn’t much cop for showing me the way. Anyway, it was an experience!

Sunday was the Oakley 20 race which went pretty much according to plan – perhaps a bit quicker than I planned, but I wasn’t shattered at the finish, even had a bit of a spurt at the end as the clock ticked towards 3 hours, so the end result was the same (but sub 3 hours! ;-)) – there’s more about this here.
