4.19 Miles, 46:09 Minutes


Well then, last week’s plan to get out three times didn’t pan out, did it?

Last week ended up pretty busy and, disappointingly, tonight was my first run in over a week. I get a bit agitated when I don’t get a run in for a little while and the manic energy was starting to make me a little tetchy over the last few days, so it was nice to get out and burn some of that off.

The week’s break didn’t really do me much damage, and I got a reasonably respectable run in. I covered more ground than last time (albeit at a slightly slower pace) and if I’m honest, I probably could have squeezed another few minutes out if I’d really pushed it, which is a good sign.

My bid to try and phase out those cheaty walking breaks is continuing, and I got to the twenty minute mark before needing to take a three minute breather, which was a decent outcome. All told, 8 of the 46 minutes tonight were walking, respectable enough for me at this stage.

I guess I’m happy enough with how I’m progressing towards my first 10k of the year which is about 6 weeks away now. I’m pretty confident of building my distance up in training by then so I can handle it reasonably comfortably. Let’s see what the weeks throw at me though.

Thursday is application day for the Blaydon Races. I’d really love to get a place in that because I’ve never done it before, and it’s obviously pretty iconic. It’s also fairly handily spaced in my schedule for the year too. I’m also itching a little bit to get some other events booked in – Might even stretch to another half marathon or two. In for a penny and all that…
