What I actually did

Monday:  Rest (not even a cycle to work!)

Tuesday: Cycled to work. 3.55M efforts session at club. average pace of 08:57min/mil

Wednesday: 4.19M. Cut the run short as my left leg was so painful, I was hopping. Went home and stretched.

Thursday: 6.64M steady pace average of 09:31min/mil. Strapped my knee up and, while it felt weird, seemed to do the trick.

Friday:  Cycled to work

Saturday: 14.67M steady run, ave pace of 09:32min/mil. Happy with that, leg feels much better.

Sunday: 6.65M with Mr Charming ave pace of 09:44min/mil. There were some killer hills in there too and it was his longest ever run so pleased with the distance!

This week I will be mainly figuring out logistics for the race. Bib numbers, pasta meals, bag drop, airport shuttles etc. Oh, and working out what I’m going to wear.
