I'm struggling to match the training program. Week four was okay, a 20 mile long run meant only one mile under the total. Last week was supposed to be a fairly easy week but I managed to make a meal of it. A week totalling 28 didn't start well, I just couldn't be bothered with the Tuesday three. A dismal run home from work (only 3 miles) in the pouring rain dodging vehicles in the dark wasn't the best run I've had.
Things didn't improve at the weekend where I just couldn't fit in a long run. In the end I settled for three short runs but just couldn't make it out for a fourth, settling for some core strength exercises instead.
I think I'm bored of the cold, dark and all too familiar local roads which have been my training ground this winter. I think it's time to find a different training area, if I can be bothered.
Week ending 31st Jan - Tues 5, Thurs 5, Sat 20. Weekly total 30 miles.
Thurs 3, Sat 4 & 5, Sun 7. Weekly total 19 miles.
