Had a decent week this week running wise.
On Tuesday morning I went for a 3 mile run before work. I’ve been using these 3 mile runs as a chance to work on my speed and I managed to run 3 miles under 30 mins! It’s the first time I’ve ran that fast in around 18 months. Getting an average speed of less than 10 mins a mile isn’t easy or me, but I did it. I did the first mile in 9 minutes 20 seconds!
I went to the gym on Wednesday, but to be honest it was very half arsed. I was there for about 40 mins and did a bit of spinning and some weights. I just wanted to go home if I’m honest and wasn’t in the mood at all.
On Friday I ran 7 miles. It was hard, windy and kept raining a bit. I averaged 11 min 55 seconds a mile which isn’t great but I’m not focusing on speed, just getting the distance in. IT WAS HARD.
Next week I have to run 8 miles.
How was your week?
