Day 6 is here and gone and I was joining my friends from the Triathlon club for a fartlek session which was brilliant. Reason 1, I wasn't training on my own for a change and reason 2 it was a different session from just road running.
I worked really hard tonight and I'm feeling great, I'm sure I'll sleep well tonight after that work out. We all meet on a half a mile stretch and recently the council have turned off every other one of the street lights so its pretty dark, but the road isn't used very much and it has a wide pavement, which by the end of the session was starting to freeze up so we were losing alot of traction by the last set.
Tomorrows run is going to be difficult I'm off at 2pm to travel to Southampton for my 2nd Christmas with my wife's family all weekend, so I've been only multimap looking for routes in the area. I'm in 2 minds to get up early and sneak a run in or go out when I get to Southampton. Its the last day of the ashes test series tonight so I need to stay up to see the final series win, the bad news is it starts at 11pm tonight and wont finish till 8am tomorrow so I'll be o tired to run in the morning if I stay up?
Oh well lets see when the morning comes...
