Catching up

Been on a recovery week …. Utter lie …. Ive still got this lurgi and it’s not shifting.  The schools are like a scene from the walking dead, ones even got norovirus (or some such evil sounding thang) so with the poor weather and feeling crap I’ve decided to have an “off season” – Cos it sounds cool mainly.  To be fair the darker evenings make it harder to get out too so until the end of the year I’m just gonna cut back a little, rest and recover ready for the new year as I have goals!

This doesn’t mean no running just a cut down in mileage for a short period, in fact seeing as christmas is only like 6 weeks away its very short (with mince pies)

I did get out thursday but only managed 2 and a half miles and struggled with that. I went looking for sunset for Sergei but the clouds bloody intervened.

Its a beautful day today though and I can’t resist …. waiting for tide to do a slow easy one just to enjoy the day. Training for the soul not body.

Best sunset I could get
I did catch the moon though

  1. ‘Off season’. Sounds like a real athlete kind of thing to me. They write about it in books. But given that my recovery week has stretched into 10 days of no running I think that I’m having one too! However I’m planning an ‘on season’ for Christmas. I’ve got 3 weeks off so I plan to do some slow running every day. Oh yeah! Fit for 2017 and ready to roll! That’s my goal😁

    1. That sounds like my plan! Yeah time off over christmas is great 😉 We are real atheletes too, just because we don’t win trophies doesn’t make us any different. We just win our own battles

      1. Building up through the year. A half in feb, 22 miles Preseli Beast in May (If I get in as its part of the Welsh fell running championships this year) and then the 32 miler I deferred from last August to this.

        So touch wood if I can stay injury free I can build slowly throughout the year
