Another big 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  it 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 Winterborne 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 month No.2, not 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.
