A bit different?

A couple of Sundays ago I did an unintentional road 10k. It was the first proper road run I'd done in ages. But to run so far was unintentional. I was trying my Sole footbeds in my Inov-8 road shoes which have just a 6mm heel to toe drop. I hadn't had them on for quite a while so wondered how I'd get on. But they were just great with the footbeds. So much so that at my usual point for turning for home I felt I just wanted to carry on running, so I did. My total run was 10k and it was the best time this year by half a minute, which on the face of it doesn't seem so much but it was a much more undulating route and much higher total climb than my previous 10k pb this year.

So I was pleased!


Saturday just gone I thought I'd just push out a bit and extended one of my mixed trail with a bit of road 10k routes a bit to 7.5 miles. It was the furthest I'd run for a long time, maybe 2 years.

I was happy but tired when I finished and I've taken a couple of days rest.



For the next couple of runs I'll do short ones. Then maybe something different again next weekend. I've a couple of things in mind. One a longer mixed run, the other a 5 mile race. It depends how I'm feeling towards the weekend. Race or longer leisure run?

In the meantime I'm clocking up the k's to the 1000k Challenge
