Easy start to the week with a rest day, so 5 easy miles before my body check and massage from Jenny Molloy. Then the plan was to keep building the mileage over the week with single runs and then a double set of longer runs at the weekend, the exception was including a parkrun at the end of the Saturday long run and Lytchett 10 as the last 10 miles of my Sunday run. All steady paced run Tuesday – Friday as planned and on Saturday I was joined by Rich on the Castlemain trail way to Moors Valley nice and steady on a cold and dressily morning, again my timing was tight and with a couple of minutes to spare we joined the field for my 1st Moors Valley parkrun, I was happy with the pace but unfortunately due to some confusion the lead runners missed a turn point and we ended up running an extra miles so finished in 24:48, but all good and legs felt OK with the effort. Sunday’s weather was much kinder and with a steady 12.5 miles I arrived at Lytchett school for a quick change and on the day race entry (not overly prepared ;-)). Surprisingly the race went very well and on the undulating course I was more than happy with the 60:48. Added bonus we also picked up the team prize for BAC (Team: Steve Way, Anthony Clark, Ross Blakemore & Tony Hunt).
Diet \ Food Diary
I’ve not been recording my calorie intake, but have now started watching my diet with the return to my previous strategy that has done me well for my last two London marathon’s with structure to ensure my fueling is assisting my training and recovery.
