My experience of Bank Holidays is that they tend to fly past – but this weekend seems to have been a pretty slow one, with today, especially, seemingly lasting 40 hours instead of 24… I’m not sure if that has anything to do with not having a full-time job any more or not, but it has seemed satisfyingly long.
Last night we went to see Lady Gaga… another few drinks and another slightly bad head this morning when I woke up (I must stop doing that). After the high of completing the 100oth mile yesterday, I needed some inspiration this morning and so dove into the pages of the latest edition of Runner’s World and decided to do a fartlek run.
I’ve mentioned these before early on in my marathon training. Basically, they are an easy way of doing interval training: pick an object in front of you and run as fast as possible to it, then slow down till you get your breath back and keep repeating. If you look at the heart rate graph by clicking on the details link below, you will see lots of little peaks, these are from when I was sprinting.
In the middle of one of these sprints, I was reflecting on yesterday’s run with David and how nice it is sometimes to run with other people, so I am extending an invite to anyone who fancies it to come on the run that completes my 1095th mile.
I’m planning to do this with a 5miler on Saturday June 26 and probably in Hyde Park… if you fancy joining me, give me a shout by clicking here, the more the merrier
