Bushy Park 5k time trial Saturday.
24k long run Sunday - Thames path to Walton Bridge, over the bridge, back through Shepperton, Lower Sunbury, Hampton, half-way round Bushy Park, pass Hampton Court, over Hampton Court Bridge, turn right, get into bath, bliss...
Meeting up with some club mates at 7am tomorrow. Going for a hilly/muddy 11-12 miles then maybe add on an extra 5-6 miles if I feel OK.
Was supposed to be doing a fell race on Sunday, but poor organisation (on my part, I thought the fell race was going to be on Saturday) means that I told my gf that she was free to enter a 10k and I'd look after the little dude. So I'll be up in Dewsbury watching the 10k on Sunday morning, and missing the race I'd entered (I race often, she races infrequently so it's only fair!!).
12ish turned out to be 14 miles on Saturday, 6ish turned out to be 8 miles on Sunday and I was nominated for 3 awards this afternoon... Ladies Marathon Champion, Superhero Award, and Club Champion. I was awarded the Club Superhero for running 5 marathons and 3 ultras last year and breaking my PB at every distance from 10k to ultra
Update on my w-e :
5k time trial - was expecting to smash my PB by 30 secs. Only beat it by 2 secs in the end
24k run turned into a 10k run as Greg Jnr was ill and I didn't want to be out of the house for too long again
I only did 10 miles on sunday and no bike. I think the excess wine and junk food during my night away in b'ham, combined with the stress of flying go to me. I was running 30 seconds a mile slower than usual, and at a higher HR.
Went with a friend fell running, from Friday to sun afternoon. Great weather and enjoyed camping out and running. Was hard, with two really long runs in the morning and evenings, and just chilling out in the midday. Well worth it, we are both well tanned, legs ache, body aches, but loved it. Of course being out gets away from noise, fumes and bad foods.
