Things have been a bit hectic this week so I have not been able to update posts. In brief, this week so far has gone like this:
Monday - legs heavy and knees sore so a nice easy recovery run of 4 miles
Tuesday - 9 miles with 4 x 7 mins, with 2 mins jog recovery.
Wednesday - Gym, for weights session and 5 miles on treadmill. Since I am not a big fan of treadmills (getting bored very quickly) I decided to keep things interesting by starting off at a 2% incline and keeping the pace steady, increasing the incline by a further 2% every 2 minutes up to 14% then 2 minutes at 15% (the highest setting for the machine) before reducing the incline by 2% every two minutes until back to 1%. I followed this with a 6 minute mile and then a nice easy jog to make it up to 5 miles.
As promised, here a some photographs from Run Preston, from last Sunday
