After finishing on a high last week with a dreich-but-wonderful 10k, this week has been a little different: lower mileage to accommodate an incredibly busy week. I did what I could, and I’m sure my back and my knee are grateful for lower mileage!
I didn’t want to push too hard after Sundays run, and so we headed out for a daytime walk at Kintarbert Forest. We managed to dodge most of the showers, which was nothing short of miraculous! It did feel good to get out in the fresh air, with no concern for time or distance.
Distance: 2.88 miles
Time: 57m 20s
Elevation: 407 ft
After a hugely busy day at work that was full of unexpected events I was in need of some headspace. It was another very wet evening, and I was pushed for time but I was grateful to be able to get my trainers on and run around the harbour.
Time: 33m 14s
Elevation: 51 ft
It was another very busy day, and I knew I wouldn’t manage to run on Thursday or Friday due to work, so I squeezed in a short evening run. Not much to say: dark, wet, short but very much needed!
Time: 33m 27s
I think it’s fair to say that on Sunday morning I was desperate to get out for a run after a few days of having no time for it. I kept it short, and I think I’ll be grateful for that over the next few weeks, I know how much our bodies need to cut back every so often. We headed out to the timber route above Torinturk and I ran a lovely but slow 5k in sunshine. It was gorgeous! It was a run that was good for the soul.
Time: 39m 30s
Elevation: 440 ft
I finished the week with 12/13 of my Great Run Solo – November Accumulator runs done, so only one to go! Roll on next week to get that completed!
