Did I Mention... I Dont Like Beach Runs

After gettig my new shoes from Netwons and having a rest day on Sunday I was really looking forward to this run session. Its been a while since I'v joined up with them due to races and recovery days its a hard session which blows awy those cobwebs.

I was not expecting s half road half beach run... and especially as I was in my new shoes.

The set was 1km on the road and 1km on the beach, we did this session back in April and I got soaked through, but lucky enough for me the tide was out so at least I could keep my shoes dry.

I was a tough session, and it was far harder running on the beach to the road, on the first set I managed to hang off the back of the lead pack I managed to gain the majority of catchup on road. Once we completed eh 2km we had 1 minute rest/recovery and then off we went again. The second set I was blown away by the lead pack and found myself back in the main group I kept on thinking it as the Peloton, just like the TDF.

It was another hot evening, I've got to stop wearing underarmour for my run sessions as I was soaked through. I drank some Orbana before I left for the session as it has been a great carb load drink before the intense sessions. I was luck enough to et some more samples from them so I have been handing them out in the triathlon club, so I hope everyone has liked them. If not pass on your comments back to the team at Orbana,

Below the line was a sprint session

We finished the session off with 5 sprints which I coped with fine, I seem to get some more energy out of somewhere and I managed to beat a few of the others, must be my new trainers.
