I’ve had a great week this week – a couple of sub 8 minute miles on Monday and a storming run on Thursday. Long run was a bit of a bummer but I just couldn’t catch my breath, so I thought it was better to cut my losses.

Calorie goal: 11.500

Not too worried about the extra calories, my running’s going well and I feel a bit more toned.
