Tuesday was long-easy-offroad. Having been getting close to two hours recently I figured one hour would be enough. I spent a while longer than anticipated checking out some new routes through the fields towards Durdar and ended up at 75 mins. But very easy pace though.

By Thursday I felt much too tired to train so I went on Friday instead. Doing mile reps, even half hearted ones the day before a hard long run seemed unwise so Friday was just 6 miles easy jogging.
The long hard run on Saturday was also cut back, to 12 miles. I reckoned I could run at about 6:05-6:10 per mile but from the outset I was only on 6:15 pace. At the finish I'd averaged 6:14 and felt a bit disappointed to be honest. Sunday I jogged again - 8 miles offorad.
So that was my easy week. I felt quite tired most of the week but I reckon I did get plenty of rest as tonights reps session went very well....
With Darren for company I ran three, two mile efforts. Each one was significantly quicker than I managed last time over this same session. Next time will be 4 by 2 miles - gulp!
