Two sessions – an update

Up early again tomorrow for a run… Well I haven’t run for quite a while now, but I did squeeze in a couple of gym workouts. On Thursday I managed a brief half an hour session in the gym and on Friday I managed an hour and ten minutes of solo spinning after work. It […]

Too much, too hot, too fast

The whole run was only 6 miles in around 54 minutes, making a 9 minute/mile pace – clearly not my best. Although it did involve several breaks for rest, waiting for my […]
