This week has been hard going on the training front. Too many late nights (3.30am on election night!) and too much birthday cake but I got the runs done.
Wednesday – short run but very heavy legs. I’m finding the short runs after a recovery day all feel a bit heavy.
Thursday – the best day of the week. 25 minute run.
(Killer) Friday – trying a threshold run after 4 hours sleep is just silly. Also, myCoach doesn’t like trees. The gps signal is all over the place. Again the nike+ sensor has me running a much more even pace.
Sunday – a nice gentle 30 minute run but again my legs felt pretty stiff and heavy.
Monday – 50 minute run. Again the myCoach gps has my pace all over the place. I ran along the Clyde again and the trees play havoc with the pace guide. I’m not sure why it doesn’t correct itself when it reacquires the signal. Odd. Again nike+ has me at a much more even pace.
So, the numbers for the week are:
Time: 3:11:14 Distance: 32.6km Calories: 2623
In the 5 weeks of training I’ve run 133.92km and used 10775 calories in 13 hours. If you’d like to support my efforts to help Christian Aid then please sponsor me at http://www.justgiving.com/stewartcutler
