AM had a bloggers event with Ted Baker and Running Heroes (you can spot me in the video in a blue t-shirt running up the steps) - it was to showcase the new Ted Baker "Fit to a T" sportswear range.

Friday 11th  - 45 Min Easy Run
AM -
Ran into work with laptop in rucksack - I don't think it's really good for me as hips always ache more after
PM - Realised that because we were going out with my parents all day on Sat (oh la di dah!) I'd have to get up WAY too early on Saturday and just couldn't face it. Mr B was doing a long run after work so I figured I might as well do mine too as an extended run home after work. Tough but made it through 18miles.

AM  = 1:14:16, 8.3mi, 8:51/mi 142bpm
PM =  2:33:22, 18.4miles, 8'18/mi, 143bpm

Saturday 12th - Should have been 135 min steady long run
Actually - rest day

Sunday 13th - 30 minutes Body Weight Conditioning Work

Aly Dixon Marathon World Championships


Needed to get stuff from work and because of rest day yesterday and it being a nice morning I figured I'd run into work. Also - we went to watch the IAAF World Championship marathon races between church services, which was ace and I got Aly Dixon's discarded bottle.
Conditioning work done PM - tired legs!
Stats:
1:08:24, 8.9miles, 7'40/mi 170bpm
