I’ve now just come to the end of my third week of training and so far, all seems to be going well. I haven’t missed a training session yet despite work being really busy and trying to fit in some social events around the 4 runs a week which I’m very proud of 🙂 I even did 4 miles before meeting friends for dinner and drinks on Friday evening!
I had a really good speed work session on Thursday and have been feeling really strong this week. Today I did my furthest distance so far, 8 miles, which finally takes me over the half way mark distance wise. Apart from a strong headwind during the first uphill climb, the rest of the run went pretty well. The last mile I did feel my energy drop significantly so I decided to post online and discuss with my fellow club runners about refuelling. It’s not something I had considered for a half marathon distance but following the mixed feedback I might experiment with a few things on some of my longer training runs.
I have my first race of the year next Sunday! I’ve been dying to get out and do an event so very excited to be doing the 10k at MK festival of running, even if the did completely mess up on the numbers (can you spot the error?).
I’m also looking forward to getting my first bling of 2015! Wish me luck!
