Today was just another "keep loose" 5 mile run, im into my taper now and im really looking forward to my first tri next /Sunday, so this time next week it will all be over and I'll be able to tell you all about it.
I had been out all day visiting a Welsh museum with my parents in law so when we got home my lovely wife made a Sunday dinner while I went out for a quick jog.
I'm sticking to 5 miles max for now on runs so I keep loose but don't over do it, so I ran the same route as the other day, I know the roads so I could take it easy on the up hills and stride it out on the downs. Even though I took it easy, I still managed a personal best for the route! On the way home I had a extreme pain in my side, it felt like a "stitch" pain, so I loosened my HR belt and this seemed to help. I still worked hard on the workout as I got that PB and my legs feel great, and to top it off I did the whole set at an average pace of 7 minutes and 24 seconds! I have broken the 7 and half minute mile marker!
I saw another runner out today, the lad looked like he was in proper pain when I ran past him. I was temped to stop and offer him a piggy back, but I think he would have turned me down because I was soaking wet with sweat!
On the plus side my dinner was top banana!
I think im doing my first sea swim in the morning.... ARRGGGHHH!!!
