Well what a day, i set out to do my run at 12.30 and during the first 3 miles it was sunny, then hail stones, then pouring, then some heavy hail stones and then the sun was out !
Today i did the same run as last friday so along the canal to spiers wharf the through charing cross to kelvingrove park, then kelvin walkway garscube estate and home. When i was on the kelvin walkway to young students passed me, so i stuck in behind them and passed them about 2 miles later, its nice to be back to myself as before the fling race. The last 2 weeks of training have been hell, as i felt constantly tired falling asleep early every night, being grumpy and in general spiraling into a sort of deep depression. So now i feel 100 times better and still running, so what happened ! well after the fling the next week i trained too hard and basically over trained and my head went down. So back on track and aiming to get a few decent weeks training till the whw race and probably do a 36mile training run next week, which will be on the whw.
Total mileage. 12.6m
Well done to all the harriers who ran the helensburgh 10k, a total of 12 runners from the club ran.

Not sure if today will be anything other than another rest day. After my fling and the week afters training i have been suffering with calf cramp and a nigglie calf. My plan was to run the 10ks in the next few weeks but with only 5 weeks till the whw race im not sure whether to risk it. So plan is for next week to be high mileage and see how i feel.


Today i was working in labelle forme clinic and so a run looks as though its out the window so its a rest day today.
