As well and documenting my training here on the blog I am also keeping a hand-written journal too. Keeping a journal is something I’ve often tried to do and it’s fallen by the wayside, so I am really making an effort to keep up with it, even if it is mainly about the marathon training. So, here’s my entry for this run…
8.12mi 1h3m TTM 50.46mi
I didn’t know it until I just wrote it above but this run took me past the 50-mile mark on my training journey. Given that this official plan only started 10 days ago and consists of 7 runs to date I am pretty pleased with that.
Today was labelled as “Intervals”. So I did Rabbit Alley, Startfits to Fadmoor, Gillamoor then KMS route (with a little bit of Keldholme) and alternated between an easy half-mile and then a hard half mile. Tough going in the hard intervals climbing to Fadmoor!
I feel so much better today. Less leg ache and my ankle seems better. Has my body finally accepted we are in training mode? I hope so.
