Felt like a very long run. Bumped into Andreas on the mountain, so at least the conversation helped. 90km down / 10km to go

Thursday run No.1: 5km

Half asleep this morning though the legs are almost back to normal, and had a nice quick trot around town. Not sure if I’m going to be feeling that fresh tonight when I need to do 13km… 77km done / 23km to go.

PT Session No.9: Shouldn’t have eaten that cake

Six burpees down and I could feel it coming back up. Only realised when chewing said piece of cake that it was less than 2 hours before my personal training session, but it was a damn fine slice of office birthday sponge, and it was worth it. Luckily I only did two thirds of my session as I bitched to Justin about my hamstrings and we had to stretch for 20 minutes. Note to self, might try that ruse again. He did tell me he was pleased with my progress and from next week he is intensifying the programme. I am genuinely flabbergasted that it could possibly be harder than this.

Seventh consecutive day of running and I’m finding it a bit tough

Legs still super tight, had to stop and stretch them a bit which is a worry, as I never have to do this once I start. Heart and lungs raring to go, hamstrings are too tight for more than a shuffle. Did loosen up a bit on the way back home though. 66km done / 34km to go.

Monday run No.2: 5km

So the killer plan wanted me to do 5 x 1000m speedwork. I damn well shuffled as fast as the hamstrings would allow but barely managed 6 mins a km. Had a sneaky 30 seconds walk break between reps. 56km done / 44km to go.

Monday run No.1: 6km

Okay, so I’ve run the following day after a marathon, but I usually leave it to the evening. Running on top of a marathon with less than 24hours recovery is a bit hard. Oh and I’m running again tonight. 50km done / 50km to go.
