Industrial action

I didn’t quite manage the 8 mile speed session that my training plan called for today.  I say quite.  I didn’t manage it at all.

I could have squeezed it in before leaving my in-laws this morning, but I’m not overly fond of early morning runs*.

I did try to shoe-horn it in on the way home, during a 2 hour layover in Sheffield, but found both the flat, litter-strewn and deserted tow-path and the undulating, litter-strewn and deserted industrial estate pavements slightly intimidating, so opted for 8 miles of Temple Running instead.

I could have completed it locally once I got home, but my sofa was singing its siren song.

So instead I shall settle for the 3 junk miles I did manage in Sheffield and I’ll think about how to fit in a decent tempo session tomorrow.

*this may be a slight understatement

  4. A bit of it must have been fast, avoiding being run over does it for me. Speed session done!

    There are those who claim that no speed sessions are needed to run an ultra. There are those who claim that they are needed. I choose to believe the first ones.
    Although I will be introducing speed training to my running schedule next week. It’s good with variation, I guess.

  6. I have often logged mileage in Temple Runs, I should have added that to my milage!
