Coming back from injury

So it looks like I’ll be resting this week… I managed to rest all the way to Thursday evening – that’s nearly a week right? I was just going to do a small gym session: I’d already turned down the offer of a level 4 spinning class, which would have been far too long and […]

Race day

Resting or light exercise before the race on Saturday… I managed to squeeze in a quick morning run on Thursday as my last run pre-race. It was a little quicker than my recent runs, but also a little shorter. We ran 3.9 miles in 31 minutes (pace 7:44 min/mile). It was a lovely rainy day […]

EZ, getting harder

More running tomorrow… I ran with the EZ group today; however I found myself getting ahead of them as we were running along the river, so I looped back to let them catch up. The group then split into various smaller groups and I realised that I was “stuck” with the fastest EZ group, which […]

Too much, too hot, too fast

Early start for running again tomorrow… It was another double exercise today, which in retrospect was probably a bad idea. A relatively short run nice and early in the morning: only 3.8 miles, possibly explaining why I was in need for a little more. Although I guess it was a little more with cycling 15 […]

Another double

Out early tomorrow for a long(ish) run… On Friday I set out with a friend with the intention of an hour-long run, but in the end it was just short of an hour – a mere 6.5 miles in 53 minutes (a pace of 8:09 minutes/mile). The pace was slightly faster than the EZ (easy) […]

Evening run

I think that’s all for today… I managed to make it to the evening meeting of the EZ group at the running club. It’s always a bit of a mad dash from the lab that can be anything from 10-30 minutes by bike traffic depending. This time I was 5 minutes early and the organiser […]

Pacing yourself

Not sure what I’ll do tomorrow… I took the day off on Tuesday and today I only did one exercise session – I’m slacking I know… I started the day with the 720 run with the running club. I was tempted to graduate from the EZ (easy) to the intermediate or even training groups, but […]
