I am happy to say I am 100% recovered! I ran 5km 3 times last week and 10km yesterday. The 10km was great and I didn’t feel the 50k in my legs or body at all. My feet were perfect after the race! I was so happy I even wrote a letter to New Balance to tell them how good these shoes were for me.
My trusty New Balance trail shoes.
I’ve had some inquiries about the Next Race and Next Goal countdown clocks on my sidebar. I have some goals I work for every year. This will be some big races or races that are important to me. As part of my training for these goals I do lots of runs in races. In these races I only look at achieving some training milestone, never any race/time goals. It is also a great way of doing some long runs.
So at the moment my next goal is the 50km circuit race. My next race is a run in a business relay where I’ll run 7km for my company. There are two more races after that before the next goal will be the next race as well.
The 50km circuit race is a road race on a 5km course. I’ll be running 10 x 5km during the race. It is at a school so part of the course will be in the school grounds with the rest in the roads around the school. I love circuit races and think they are great for mental strength.
Have a great week everyone! Happy training!
