First run after the half marathon yesterday. Time to stretch the legs so a short loop in just over 10 minute mile pace was nice and easy.
So this was my first half marathon and I enjoyed most of it - the last couple of miles were really hard. I am told that the time is pretty good and I still have to keep telling myself that I couldn't run for a minute 7 months ago!
Thank you to everyone who supported us on the route - especially Judy, Chris, Kelly, Liz, Richard and Ian for their encouragement.
I said that I would run a minimum of a mile a day to allow for these special runs - I will find out tomorrow how good a decision this was!
An overnight stop in Bournemouth meant that it was an early run. A couple of miles around the local streets (and a very damp park) to keep the challenge going.
Have to not push too hard because I have the half marathon tomorrow.
An early start today as I need to take Emily to Bournemouth for a university check tomorrow.
Managed a couple of miles as I also have to be in work early but today was another milestone as I hit 250 miles so far for the challenge.
Managed to get a quick run in before swimming tonight which means I wasn't going to be running at 9:15.
A nice route which offers a reasonable distance but without too many hills.
Trying a few alternative routes to add something different. I also tried to run tonight at a slower pace in advance of the half marathon on Sunday - but really found it difficult to keep at such a slow pace.
Ran the same route as last night to work on my stamina up hills. Nice to be able to add variety into the local routes.
Decided tonight to run a short one, but to add some more hill work in advance of Sunday. Didn't have a lot of time but it was good to push hard and keep a decent pace up the hills.
A wet run today but as the tunnel was closed again on my normal route I went along the canal. Kept a good pace to work on stamina and ran on uneven ground as the last couple of miles on Sunday are on uneven ground as well.
