Another┬ábig jump in mileage (Biggest July ever!) with the final week recording 94.4 miles. And July also saw the return to racing, courtesy of White Star Running’s Invader Races where I was for the weekend with XMiles. In the Saturday ┬áit was the Half Marathon and the Sunday out again for the Full Marathon. The Invader Races are hosted at East Farm just outside Blandford Forum in┬áWinterborne Whitechurch, challenging trail courses and to top it off a baking hot weekend.

Plus a couple of Moors Valley Parkruns including 8/9 mile pre easy run from Wimborne to get to the start (Not always making it) and a 17:39 PB for the course.

Now off to the French Alps for some hills!

Diet & Weight

Build up┬ámonth No.2,┬ánot planned to record weight June – September to concentrate on recovery and building up mileage and avoiding any niggles that are still in the back of my mind. Switching to a balanced diet with a few treats that coincide with holidays and special occasions.
