Friday

Lovely early morning dog walk, in very pleasant weather. Then a run after work in less pleasant weather. I am not one for complaining when it’s too hot, as it is all to rare in the North East of England…. but damn it was hot. I just took it easy though as have a long run in the morning. So very little recovery time.

Saturday

A beast of a day. It was sunny, hot and stuffy. I love this weather, I am definitely a person who prefers warm than cold. However, I  had a lot to achieve today.

Firstly I walked the dogs so we didn’t come home to a little present on the floor. Then threw on the running vest, and out on a 14 mile run straight away. At midday and the hottest part of the day. I do my runs on what I call the “lines”, basically old railway lines that have been turned into walking and cycling paths. I class them as very easy trailrunning. Beginner level haha. I run in barefoot/minimalist shoes, and my feet were sore by the end of the 14 miles. Apart from that though I managed it quite well, quite slow but quite well!

Taining for Ultra’s, is slowly changing my mindset, in the fact that the Stava time for my 14 mile run is irrelevant. It is all just about time on your feet.

The run purposely ended 3.5 miles before home. So I had an additional walk after my run to help with my ultra methodology.

Exercise & Recovery

1 mile dog walk

14 mile run

3.5 mile walk

Food

Breakfast – rump steak

Run food – I am learning how to eat on a run. I have a Prime Beef bar, a salami stick and 2 real fruit and nut bars. My initial plan is I would like to eat little and often on race day so I need to practise

Dinner – chicken, dark chocolate & Greek yogurt

Sunday

Active recovery day. I like to do a cold water dip/swim once a week. I am sure it will help with recovery. Today the water seemed almost too warm, however, I am sure it will have had some positive benefits.

Exercise & Recovery

2 mile dog walk and a cold water dip in the river.

Food

Breakfast – sausages

Lunch – black pudding and sausages

Dinner – cheeseburgers, dark chocolate & Greek yogurt

Conclusion

Target running miles for the week – 25 miles

Completed miles – 26 miles

Total amount of training running miles – 52 miles

All my runs were down with The Wife, and 14 miles was her furthest ever run. So she is doing great.
