It’s a week since I ran the Great Scottish Run Half Marathon. I had hoped to break 2 hours. I convinced myself that my training had gone well but the reality is that with running input = outcomes.
I ran 15 times in August and just 9 times in September.
That’s not enough miles.
I only had 2 long runs, 16k and 17k. That’s not enough.
55 minutes through 10k was way too fast for the first half of the route.
So, on reflection 2:06:14 was ok.
If I want to do better I need to do more. And that’s the challenge.
3 or 4 runs per week plus cross training over the winter.
Quality miles, not junk, because input = outcomes.
