Where has 2015 Gone...?



Well where has 2015 gone, the year has gone lightening quick!

I know most of my focus has been on training for marathons this year but I think I'll be happy for the break after Bournemouth marathon. I have pencilled in a off road race but I'll see how it works out in November.

I'm currently in week 7 of 12 for my Bournemouth marathon training plan and I'm feeling fast im progressively putting out 6.30 / 7/ 8 minute mile pace on 8 mile runs which is great. Not sure this will help me on the 26.2 distance but the weekend long runs seem to be getting easier.

I've had to reschedule how I train during the week now as I've changed jobs so a lot of the mid week session are on on new routes or the treadmill which could be worse, but I'm also tried to track my cals in/out which is hard when your eating in restaurants 3/4 nights a week.

I've entered Brighton half again to get a new PB it was a great race, so I wanted to go back and my wife wanted to run the 10 km again. After that its full on tri mode as I take on the 2016 Ironman Wales race...

New bike purchase required... I'll keep you posted!

Motivation...

I've been really struggling with motivation recently, and its really effected my training. I've recently found some training partner...
