Back on the plan

After 3 days off the training it was time to get back on track today. The run on the plan was another dreaded ‘steady‘ one, this time 5 miles in 48 minutes, as the one last week was 5 miles in 46 minutes can only think this is a typo, but one I am happy to live with. Set out after dinner and felt very sluggish, can only think this was due to a very large, very delicious piece of sticky toffee pudding that I consumed whilst away! Managed the 5 miles in 46:42 with an average pace of 9:20, not as good as last week but still in range.

Thought I would share a joke with you that my brother text me today, unusually for him it is not in bad taste or offensive! ‘Just had curried pelican at the local Indian, it wasn’t bad, but the bill was enormous’ As Basil Brush would say “Boom Boom”!

Am off to read the latest issue of Womens Running which promises on the front cover my fastest 10k, trim bingo wings and how to burn more fat, great value for money!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Sticky toffee pudding and the ability to run five miles at that pace is impressive. I take it your knee is fully recovered.

    I bought that magazine too hoping I could slim down to speed up rather than speed up to slim down! Sounds like your taining is going well.
