It’s been an age since the last update, sadly it’s because I’ve had to stop running entirely right now.
Kind of relieved London Marathon has now been and gone, watching from afar has been painful.
It’s been nearly a month since my run streak ended and a couple of holidays along with injury haven’t helped.
In the end, discretion and family time won out as I knew it ultimately would and my 109 day run streak is done.
Had two things on the radar this week – the culmination of my 100 day run streak then for day 101, the Millennium Way Ultra.
Last week was dreadful – low, slow and hurting my mojo had well and truly gone. A few new routes and a change of scenery and I’ve had a great week getting ready for the Millennium Way Ultra.
Last weekend was bittersweet with a championship won but a dreadful race and a painful fall and I’m still angry at myself.
After Dewsbury last weekend, my legs felt pretty trashed for a couple of days but I felt a speed session and a lot stretching helped stave off too much stiffness ready for another race this weekend.
I probably should still have squeezed in my speed session on Tuesday but Dewsbury 10k on Sunday would be fast enough anyway so I just took it easy instead.
I was supposed to be in week 3 of the 4 week cycle which meant a reasonable big week with a speed session and quality long run but I bought forward my easy week.
