Unfortunately I picked up a cold towards the end of last week which is lingering on and although it has not prevented me from training I would like to think it is the reason I struggled in last nights session. But in reality it is more down to a lack of fitness.
I again decided to go out with the group rather than a track session. The session was a 9 mile run which included 6 x 3 min with 2 min jog recovery. After the first rep I was off the back, trailing Liam, Paddy and Mike. Normally I would at least be able to match pace with them, but was left struggling in their wake. But at least I got the session in.
Today saw a welcome return of some sunshine after a series of dull and miserable days and this evening gentle 5 mile recovery run.
