I have embarked upon a new training plan. It couches its instructions in language that I can understand, rearranges itself around my schedule, and never asks me to run on a day when running simply isn’t feasible.
It is also full of exciting** sessions, no two of which are ever quite the same, comes complete with suggestions such as “pick somewhere you haven’t run before and enjoy the scenery”, and makes me feel like I’ve done good.
In the first four weeks on this plan, I have run 98 miles and clocked up three sub-28 parkruns*** in a row (two official, one freedom), something of a miracle given that I last managed a sub-28 parkrun back in March.
What’s on the plan for today?
*Okay. It’s not really magic. It’s really powered by James and Ian, but it feels like magic to me.
**I’m easily amused
***Any programme of mine will have parkruns front and centre.
