A fairly low profile easy week this week following last weekends exertions in the Lakes with the Trail Team and with a public speaking commitment and saturday race, not much to report.
I did finally get a new pair of road shoes after sending back the new version Nike Free’s I bought the other week which just didn’t look and feel right and my normal modus operandi is to talk myself into just trying them out but then of course I can’t return them so this time I was a little more disciplined and just sent them back and bought some Brooks Pure Drift.
I’m glad I did, the first run in them the other day was excellent, they’re amazingly light and comfortable so happy with the decision.
Apart from that, I spoke at a web conference called Dot_York in front of about 150 people and to be honest, without the confidence in myself that running has given me I couldn’t imagine ever having done that only a couple of years ago!
Then on saturday it was the 10 mile Cake Race, a tough fell/trail race that I wanted to do well in after running the course with Ally last year.
- Monday – 7 miles
- Tuesday – 9.5 miles
- Wednesday – 5.7 miles
- Thursday – Rest
- Friday – 5.6 miles
- Saturday – 9.9 miles (Cake Race)
- Sunday – rest
Total: 37.6 miles, 3360 ft elevation.
