One of those weeks

On Monday we had a storm. Even the children were talking about it. It had a name and it was called Imogen. To be honest, it wasn’t that bad here – quite blustery but not the driving rain that had been forecast.

Busy, busy, busy

This week is a busy one. I have to work two evenings, later than normal which also means that I am unable to go running clubs 😦 I had thought that I might bike to work on Monday but then I heard about the storm and thought better of it. Instead I went out for a run. Luckily I decided to do a mile(ish) route around my house with the aim of running each one faster than the one before. I say lucky because it turned out to be a sheltered run that seemed to avoid the worst of the wind. As you can see from below, my average pace per mile got quicker. That was all I set out to do so I was more than happy.

Tuesday was a long day at work and a  a rest day.

Intervals

Today I planned a 45 minute, easy run. I wasn’t going on my own though and the response I got was a 1 minute fast followed by 2 minutes rest 8 times. Humph. Luckily, once I got into it I quite enjoyed it. Admittedly this may be because on getting home I could see that my fast sections were nice and fast. All under 7 minute mile pace. REALLY chuffed with that.

Hills postponed!

Tomorrows plan is to bike to work. I was going to do a hill session but after today thought it best to have a slightly easier day. I have persuaded me running buddies from today to do it with me instead,;)
