Turns out on Sunday I was told to meet at the wrong place to do the cross country training session. Not to worry, I’m well informed for this coming Sunday and will be joining in to do the 5 miles.

I ran with the club on Tuesday evening as usual and did Fartlek training between lamposts. Having scoffed chocolate all day long at work I apparently had a massive store of energy because despite the sprints and recovery jogs I could have run for MILES. When I left, I felt like I hadn’t done anything.

Such is NOT the case today. I biked into work and then this afternoon, leaving everything at work – I ran home! I have self propelled 10 miles today which is a brilliant feeling. Even more surprisingly I seem to have dropped my 10 minute mile pace of times past and made it home today with a 8 minute mile pace.

Also on a running note myself and two other ladies from the club have formed a team and entered The Whole Hog Adventure Race in Wantisden in November. The course is 7-8 mile cross country run with small assault courses and purportedly a lot of mud along the way. We have to think of a team name now so if you creative lot have any ideas please leave me a comment.

Following the Hog Race Wil and I have signed up for the Thetford Duathlon. I’m really looking forward to this as it will give me a chance to compare against the last Duathlon I did and see if I’ve improved having pushed myself through a few more months of good training.

A note on Push-Ups. I am still doing them but I’ve kind of given up on trying to do the 100. I put in 100% for a few months and just could not manage to move past the 28 mark without causing pain in my shoulder. When one of my elbows started to nag I threw the towel in and since then I’ve been doing 3 reps of 20 at least 3 times per week to maintain what I did achieve.

All going well eh?…. Time to catch a cold then!
