Week 52 / Week 1 - A New Year A New Focus
31/01/12 - Rest Day
01/01/13 - Rest Day
02/01/13 - Free Run
First run of 2013, and it felt great, not to chilly but enough to keep you warm and working hard a keep focus on your running and not focused on keeping warm.
I took an extra half a mile on the route, I still took a wrong turning as it was meant to be an extra 1.5 miles, but I'll save that for next time.
It was a slow time for this one, but there was some tiredness in my legs and I wanted to do a sprint session later in the week so I eased off the speed and kept it below 9 minute mile pace.
I felt strong when I finished the first session of 2013, I knew I had more in the legs and could have done it the whole run again if I had too... Honest!

03/01/13 - Rest Day
04/01/13 - Sprint Session
I enjoyed this session last week so I thought I'd repeat it, some distances same times, and compare it to this one. I'm glad to say I have improved slightly but that could be down to anything from diet, sleep, training so I'm happy just to get another quality session under my belt.
I was a total of 16 seconds quicker on the sprint/recovery session, which is nothing. A solid session that i'm definitely going to introduce in 2013 more often.
I still got random looks from passing cars like the previous session. I did have a more lights on my arms this time so perhaps they thought it was a running Christmas tree.
I have definitely got more focus for my aims for the 2013 season, I just need to make sure I put them into practice so I can meet my objective of Ironman Wales.
Back to Wales on Sunday...
