Well there are now officially less than two months until the next big race for us – our second Silverstone Half Marathon – and I really feel we’re now about to enter the really tough slightly depressing phase of training.
Where it’s just mile after mile of running or maybe there’ll be some slow running mixed in with the quicker running. Or even some fast running in amongst the slow.
Yes, it’s a long hard, often wet, slog. Don’t get me wrong – the end result is so worth it, but it’s just a little bit dull and depressing on occasion.
On Sunday we’re planning to run for an hour or so. My hope is to beat my 10k personal best that I set in the Run Jersey event last year. Not sure I’ve got that sort of speed in me at the moment but I have to try.
The exciting thing today though is that we’ve booked our hotels and travel. We really had better do that run now hadn’t we!
