Week 9, Day 2
Goal: 7 mile build up run starting at 9s down to 7s
Actual: 8 mile build up run starting at 9s down to 7s ish plus 0.91mile cooldown
Note: I swapped Tuesday and Thursday sessions around this week.
Bliss. This run was completely uneventful apart from a sausage fingers moment when programming the Garmin which meant I added on an additional mile to build up to so ended up with 8 miles instead of 7.
I used my new headtorch which I’d bought from eBay and which was unbelievably bright. Love it. £16 including postage and it was lighting up street signs half a mile down the road.
Didn’t feel 100% on this run but my 3 year old has been poorly for the last few days so I hoping I’m not coming down with anything. However, as a treat for getting the pacing bang on I had a bit of a blast on the last mile.
