Lots to blog about today, which probably means I'll write the shortest blog entry ever as I forget everything. But I'll try.
First off are plans for this week, very rough and if it doesn't happen that's fine as well since I'm in haing fun mode. Which works well for base training. So the plan is:
1 x 30mins running
1 x 40mins running
2 x singlespeed rides
1 x long road ride
Basically what I did for most of October but I've upped one run to 40 minutes, I'm trying to think of time and not worry about pace.
I made a start today when I went running at 5pm, I thought of sticking to the roads but didn't want to hurt my legs like that so I put a head torch on. It is very scary, I saw one person and one dog when I was off-road, the dog really scared me as it ran out of the bushes. But in some ways it is fun, I think with someone else it would be fine. But it gives the adrenline rush that riding off road in the dark gives, I will always leave my route with Ali and vary it though. The head torch just about gave out enough light, but then I guess I'm comparing with my bike lights.
4.01 miles @ 10:06 min/mile pace
Average HR 164pm
Now onto Ali's knee. She has rested since last monday when it started playing up on the furthest point from home on our run so we thought yesterday was a good time to try running. Since I was still feeling ill I stayed in and she basically ran laps of the house, a little loop that was about 0.4 miles long. She went round 3 times and then stopped as it had started to hurt again. Not good so today she rang the Physio. It needs to get sorted as this is the time of year she usually hibernates and the longer she spends not doing anything the harder she'll find it to get out and since I'm in charge of her training for london the more we'll argue!
