Trailffest Training Week 6
Oops, this week really didn’t go to plan…
So, what happened?
Monday I felt very tired from the travelling I had done over the weekend and the 10 mile run I had done on Sunday so I skipped Pilates and had an early night.
Tuesday is the day of my work’s lunchtime running group and it tipped it down. The beginners group cancelled and it turned out I was the only one from my group who was at work. I didn’t really fancy running in the rain on my own so didn’t but I made sure I did the strength training in the evening.
Wednesday is usually my club run but this week I had to use the evening to prepare for something that I was doing on Thursday. It wasn’t my turn at leading this week so I wasn’t letting anyone down.
Friday was an enjoyable run with my mum in Wendover Woods, followed by coffee and cake.
Saturday was my first parkrun in a while. It was good to run a timed hilly 5k to give me an idea of where I am with my training. I ran the whole course, no walking up the hills, manged a sprint finish and averaged at 9:15 per mile. I’m not expecting to run at that pace for Trailffest but it was good to see an improvement on a tough course.
Sunday was raining and grey and I decided to make chutney instead of running. As Monday is a Bank Holiday and my Pilates class won’t be happening I shall do my 10 mile run then, rain or not!
How has your week been?
