I'm still on my taper as I'm racing on Sunday, Wales half marathon, so im sticking to 5 miles max or out for no longer than 45 minutes, and I've got to rest/very easy days scheduled on the training front for Friday and Saturday as I normally wouldn't do anything but as its Juneathon I'll do something.
After my last run on Sunday which was complete rubbish I was looking forward to this run as I had Monday off as I went to watch Swansea City v Reading which was a very long day so no run that day and as I was still shattered on Tuesday so I decided not to run on empty. Well done to the Swans I knew we would do it!
I decided to run the normal 5 miles route I did the other day and it felt 100 times better, I had drive in my legs and the energy to keep going for the 5 miles at the same pace. I wore some new light enhancement glasses that were recommended to me, from LIDL of all places and they are brilliant for £8. They do steam up a bit but I need to give them a good wipe and they are fine. I was in 2 mind to buy the light enhancing lens for my Oakleys but these will do for now.
When I got to my turn point I could have kept going but I had to think that im racing Sunday so take it easy Martyn! I took it really easy today and still clocked in under 8 minute miles which im really happy with. I just hope I can get a good time in on Sunday for the half. It was pretty mild out there tonight, the strong winds we had last week have totally disappeared, but I still went out with skins and underarmour on, the weekend it suppose to be a cracking one with highs of 20'c so fingers crossed I can leave the underarmour at home.
