So the training is going ok. I'm still enjoying it, but there are days when I enjoy it less. I think this is the time I need to embrace the gym and maybe do some other training as well as running.
So last weekend Rory popped over to mine and we ran together. After the Marlow run we thought that a bit of road running would be the way to go. I don't live too far from Blackheath so we ran over to Blackheath, and ran a few loops of Greenwich park. For those that don't know Greenwich park it has a monster hill that can be negotiated by a few different routes. We chose 'The Avenue' - a longer option than the path near the observatory, but a more gradual incline.
On paper it's a shorter route than last week, but the hills more than made up for it. On top of that when we finished we felt ok - we didn't overdo it and felt good for it.
Here's the route: (link for people in feeds)
