First weekly training blog for 2016, and 1st 7 day week of training following the kick start e-mail confirming my selection to run for England at the Anglo Celtic Plate 100k. The event is a combined open 100km/50k road races incorporating both British and Scottish 100k/50k road championship.  Also the 100k race incorporates the annual Anglo Celtic Plate home countries event.

Confirmation received on Sunday 24th January was followed by my first long run of the year, 17.1 miles which went very well, this was followed by a very solid week of easy 8 on Monday then back to back 10 mile runs towards the end of the week. A tempo run at Poole parkrun on the Saturday and 13.1 mile run to wrap up the week on the Sunday. This was my single base week completed ready to kick into 100k training. Here we go…….

Diet \ Food Diary

Diet wise first week just normal eating but have removed bad treats \ snacks replacing with more fruit and last alcoholic drink was consumed Saturday 23rd January (day before confirmation). Shame as I was out for a nice family pub lunch on the Sunday.
