Following on from last Tuesday. I may publish this series of posts as they deserve to be seen by a wider audience. I know a publisher.

So that brings my week’s mileage up to 23k (or about 14 miles), and 20k (or about 12 miles) last week. Everything felt a bit better this week: not sure if I was fighting off whatever was going around the office last week, or if I’ve got the hang of pacing myself a bit better, but things are hanging together better. Against that, I can feel a few bits just waiting for a chance to snap (muscle on my right hip and both knees are a little tetchy) so I’ve been concentrating on running gently rather than legging it. At the moment I’m trying to notch up some distance without ruining myself (when I did the 10k that started all this it didn’t matter if I couldn’t walk for a week or two afterwards, but now I’d like to be able to keep running) so I’ve not been timing myself properly, but I noticed that my 5ks are between 25 – 27 minutes at the moment.

Have dusted off my old luminous canoe hellys as well, now the mornings are a bit darker than they were. Will have to look into some sort of reflective vest or jacket, I think.
