Only 1 week to go until the big day! I managed another solid week of training this week – around 60 miles in the bank. A highlight was winning a local 10k multi-terrain race around Dovestone Reservoir, showing the hard work in training is starting to pay off.
I have tried to get a few back-to-back days of harder running in this week, to get used to doing 4 races in 4 days for the Tour of Tameside. It was also great to get a long run of 15 miles in on Sunday morning in the hills behind Active Copley. I did this with three friends which made it more enjoyable and made it feel easier, as it allowed me to switch off rather than thinking about how far I was running (top tip!).
I will soon start to ease down to make sure I’m feeling fresh and ready to go on race day.
I hope everyone’s training is going well. And remember… ‘Don’t run to add days to your life, run to add life to your days.’
