Sat 9th – Me : Easy (obv) // Mr B: Goalkeeping at football (optional 45mins but he chose not to)
I really enjoyed this. It was cold and clear and I went out at a reasonable pace and then slowed down. I had a moment where it all just flowed and I wasn't second guessing myself. Haven't had that in a while, so it was great. The distance was just right as well. I was just starting to feel the pressure on my hips as I got home.
Me: 5.4mi, 44:25, 8:11/mi, 164bpm
Sun 10th - Both: 30 mins conditioning + snowman building
I was hoping to go for a little pootle this afternoon while Mr B watched the Manchester Derby, but after unexpected snow and 2 attempted and failed efforts to get into town to church, we retreated indoors. Given that it was slippery I figured it would be unwise to try and run (Mr B would probably have barricaded the door to stop me too!) so I made a sort of snowman and did 30mins conditioning instead.
Me - 23.1 miles
Mr B – 30.7 miles
