Training / Diet / Injury

Hi Everyone.

I haven't posted for a while and the main reason for that is that I have been re-evaluating my training program due to the fact I want to properly prepare myself for next years challenges and to minimize injuries going forward.

About a month ago I decided to take my training forward. After a recommendation from a fellow ultra runner to incorporate the services of an Online coach I decided to take the plunge and signed up for 3 months training.

Well I have to say that after a month of coaching I got to say my training, diet and enjoyment factor have all taken a leap forward. I am enjoying my training like never before and my diet has improved dramatically in order to help with the recovery process. Each run I feel stronger and stronger even though a lot of them now are done before breakfast at 5.30am. This is what I did this past week:
  • Sun 8 miles - 75 mins (Long run)
  • Tue 5 miles - 42.5 mins (Fast run)
  • Wed 6 miles - 57 mins (Hill Repeats)
  • Fri 5 miles - 44 mins (Moderate fast run)
So doing about 24 miles a week. 26 miles planned next week and 28 the week after.

I am really wanting to get out there and do some other races before Xmas but with only 4 weeks to go it will have to wait until the new year. In the meantime the training will continue and eventually I will need some new shoes as my current ones I coming to their end.

Looking forward to a peaceful weekend with not much going on at all. Bliss.

Have a good weekend
