1000 miles still just about in reach….

Another week done. 5 days running this week. Which, when you consider it has been a busy week, I’m pretty pleased with. 

  • Monday = rest
  • Tuesday = 5 miles on the trails at the woods
  • Wednesday = rest
  • Thursday = 4.5 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Friday = 5 miles on the trails at the woods
  • Saturday = 3.6 miles on the trails at the woods
  • Sunday = 5.4 miles on the trails at the woods

My legs have felt very heavy and achy today, which I’m putting down to all the running on the muddy trails at the woods. Also, my feet have felt a bit sore, which I’m putting down to running in the Fivefingers on the stoney ground at the woods. Therefore, I think a bit less trail running next week. 


I’m slowly chipping into the lost miles from when I was transitioning into the Fivefingers. 

WARNING: STATISTICS ALERT!

  • 311 miles left to run.
  • 98 days until the end of the year.

Which means, on average:

  • 3.17 miles per day.
  • 22.19 miles per week. 

Definitely doable (I think).

It’s been a good week…running wise that is…

After last week’s 26+ miles, this week was all about doing much of the same. It ended up looking like this:

  • Monday – easy run at the woods with the dog
  • Tuesday – gentle run with Helen and the dog at the woods 
  • Wednesday – at the gym on the treadmill – fast
  • Thursday – rest day
  • Friday – at the gym on the treadmill
  • Saturday – steady Parkrun and a couple of extra miles
  • Sunday – easy run at the woods with the dog

Happy with the week – my legs are slowly starting to feel a bit stronger. In fact, Saturday’s Parkrun, which was my first one for a month or so, was good – did a reasonable 24min – but felt like I could have gone faster. 

Not sure what this week is going to bring – got a fair bit of marking I’ve got to get stuck into, plus an open evening on Wednesday. On top of that, I’ve started watching Fortitude again. Began watching it ages ago, but for one reason or another I stopped. And I’m loving it.
