Wednesday was an easy jog with Plucky and Dazzer - about 9 miles
On Thursday I opted to walk long with Scamp and sit in the sun by the river. Running was put off altogether which meant today I had to do the mile reps I'd promised myself. Apologies are therefore due to young Gareth after I told him I went running "every day", but fair do's, I only have one day per week "off".
Mile reps tonight felt bloody brilliant. The first time in many many weeks when I felt really good whilst running hard. Unfortunately the strong Easterly wind and unseasonably cold day put paid to fast times. My first, uphill and with that wind in my face, was scarcely inside 6 pace but at least the corresponding one to finish was a decent enough 5:22.
I suppose it must be the accumulated fitness gains of 3 months good training and now finding myself running 20 miles a week less, but after those 4 mile reps I felt like I could have completed another 6 miles brisk running. Lets hope I feel as good on Sunday for the half.
