Monday 28th - Easy run to work
Did core session but alas travelling meant no run. Will run to work tomorrow instead.
Tuesday 29th - AM: 30 minutes Recovery Run
AM - run to work - felt a lot easier than a week or so ago. Maybe it's because it's flat compared to Cornwall?!

Run to work = 1:09:49, 8.1 miles, 8'31/mi, 144bpm

So nearly turned my alarm off and went back to sleep. The warmup was slow and wasn't feeling it but somehow it all clicked when I got into the session and I loved it! Pretty pleased with this really.

Friday 1st - Easy run to work
Went to join the AdidasRunners gang for their hill session and then into work + ran half way home in the evening.
AM - 55:07, 6.6miles, varied pace
PM - 34:54, 4.3 miles, 8'00/mi, 138bpm
Saturday 2nd - 135 minutes Easy / Steady Long Run
I went down to the canal to see what pace I could settle into feeling comfortable, completed the time and then needed to go to the shop and then it felt ok so I felt like I'd finish the mile, and then another... etc so it became 23. Oops?! But it's really nice to know I can do that. Hopefully I can find another 3 in me in 5 weeks time. My back aches a little more at the end of t a run but other than being about 1min /mile slower than I was last year it's all good!
Stats: 2:56:29, 22.94miles, 7'42/mi, 149bpm
