Late Potato Run
I got home from work late and as I had a rest day on Tuesday, I had to get out there for a run, I needed to stop using the weekends race as an excuse and get out there.
I deicide to have my dinner before my run on Wednesday as I felt really drained and low on energy so I went and made jacket potato beans and cheese, dinner of champions. After consuming my dinner and waiting for an hour and a half I got changed and got out there on the road and got a run in.
The plan was to keep it simple and light, even though I had a rest day the previous day I didn't want to end up blasting out a hard run, so I kept some back for the weekend. I decided the route ans the distance was gong to be 5 miles if I felt crap and 6 miles if I felt good. The 5 mile marker came and I still had a spring in my step so I carried on for the extra half mile before turning for home. The sun was shining and the breeze was keeping me cool so why not keep going.
Last time I did this run I was a little bit quicker but I wasnt tapering so I dont feel that guilty for taking it easy. There must of been something in thing in the Swansea air as I never see people out training, but tonight I saw 4 runners and 5 cyclists out! I was amazed that i actually saw other people out training!
This is my last run before race so it was a quality run enough to keep me revving into the red ready for race day
