Since last time running has continued to go really well.
There was a really strong speed play session along the Thames one Tuesday morning. I ran a 400m time quicker than I had in a little while, at least if we ignore a little Strava segment chasing in Lanzarote last month.
Just over a week ago I had an amazing Fast Finish session taking an hour in which I covered a little over 10k. At the time I’d only run 10k quicker in races this year, and there probably weren’t many training sessions ever that have gone quicker over that distance.
Last Friday, I squeezed in a session during my lunch hour, which I haven’t done in a little while. Again this was a speed session and I did a half mile time under 4 minutes. I have to go back to my last Greenwich Park race to see one faster than that.
I had a steady effort at parkrun at the weekend as part of a longer recovery run, and then a slightly longer Fast Finish effort over 65 minutes but this one wasn’t quite as impressive as the previous week’s.
However, ultimately things are all in a good place. Fitness is good. Health is fine. Injuries are clear. Have to say I’m really positive about races to come and looking forward to them.
