OK, so yesterday was Good Friday which meant that I had a day off work… which also meant a day off swimming as the University swimming pool was closed.
I arranged to meet up with Di and Kirsty for a final long run before Paris. We met at 10am and then went for a 21.02k run, from The Common to Lordshill and then along the new Lordshill 10k route. I felt quite tired for the last couple of miles, but think that’s mostly because I’ve not been eating well. I then went home and decided to spring clean because the sooner I clear out my house the sooner I’ll be able to focus on what is important in life.
In the evening I did a Twitter quiz for The Running School:
I don’t think it will contradict what I’ve been doing with RunCamp – hopefully, it will be just that bit more tailored to me and what I need to work on. However, the honest truth is that there is no way I could afford to book a course with Running School 🙁 It will also give me something to look forward to when I get back.
On Saturday morning I did parkrun as usual. The adidas boost team were there, so they took my photo before the start. I was aiming for just under 25 minutes, but part way up the first hill, my knee started to hurt, and I only managed 25:45 🙁 I need to crack this whole nutrition thing as I’ve been eating badly all week.
On the positive side, I’ve had my club tshirt and my Run Leader vest customised 🙂
