Great week of training this week, what started off quite daunting on paper turned out to be my best full week of training so far. Week 6 introduced hill training, my longest weekday run plus my longest run ever. I feel I’ve made a huge step forward, not only is the mileage counter on the rise but I’m also starting to organise my training to fit in with the demands of being a relatively new Dad. This has meant plenty of early morning’s buts it’s got me out on the roads instead of trying to cram in the miles on the treadmill during my lunch hour. I’ve also been up to my old tricks again too, Run to work, Swim at lunch and Cycle home! Definitely a lot of positives to take from the week and with only 10 weeks until the Virgin London Marathon, it’s given me the boost I needed.
