Week before holidays is always tough

I think I did pretty well this week considering in my head all I can think about is going on holidays.  I’ve had a few commute runs and rides to work to keep the miles ticking away as part of Manchester Marathon training plan.  

I tried out cross fit for the first time as well after having bought a voucher through Living Social to try out Train Manchester.  Wow!  That is hard core, the foundation course was a sign of whats to come, I’m going to be having my first full session Saturday morning with a friend, so that should be a toughie, and tire me out sufficiently for our flight that night…..To India!

Awoke on Wednesday morning to fresh snow falling, having planned to do my long run, there wasn’t much to do except get out and run in it!  I knocked out 13 miles to get to work and then finishing at 11 at night, knocked out another 7miles in the pouring rain and wind to get home, taking me up to 20 for the day.  I know I should do the full 20 together but time was an issue, but considering they were a tough 20 I feel it will suffice.

ImageI finally got my new phone this week after having my old one stolen, so was working with an old Iphone 3 for ages waiting for my free upgrade to come around again, I can’t believe how great the new one is!!  So fast!  And look at my super trendy phone cover…….Very fitting I think.


So off on hol’s now for 3 weeks, a time to get some well earned rest but can assure you there will be a few runs in there as well.  Nothing better than running in the heat on the beach, looking forward to that, but it won’t be full on….that will be when I get back and need to focus back on Manchester Marathon on 28th April and the following weekend the Coastal Endurance Series, 34 miles in North York Moors….Eek!!!
