Hill reps in 28 degree heat! Yup that's correct, 1 mile out then 1 min up the hill and 2 min down 8 times. with another mile to get home. I drank gallons of water.
The first ever Durham City Run took place today and I singed up for the 10k, the course was tough but I really enjoyed it. I wasn't very fast at all, I managed to get around in 1 hour and 13 which was better than I thought I would.
My longest run so far. 10.61 miles of hills, cows giving me evil looks, I tripped over twice and drank so much water. But I managed to complete my first proper long run! I felt unbelievably proud of myself. Look at the elevation though, was a hard route.
Durham parkrun 3.1 miles. I was slower than a snail but I hadn't eaten anything from Friday lunch time - which I know was very bad for me and I could tell my body just had energy left in the tank.
After my long run on Friday it really made me feel more confident that I am going to be able to finish the Great North Run. Don't get me wrong I know I need to still keep up the training but at least in my head I now know the distance is manageable.
How has your week been?
