I have two main goals for the 2nd half of 2014 and they are both circuit races:
1. Jannas 18 Hour Circuit Race - 24 October 2014 (1km lap)
2. Johannesburg Festival of Running 48 Hour Circuit Race - 19 December (500m lap)
Both these goals include some hard ultra slogging so my focus at the moment is distance and more distance. For this my current running streak is working well.
Almost done with part 1 of my streak!
But there is another twist to this story...
Speed and pace! Not something I am known for at all. I don't do any speed work ever. But... this streak thing is forcing me to do some shorter than normal runs from time to time and I am starting to push them a bit more as I feel my fitness returning. My pace is improving all the time.
Streaking is certainly working wonders for me. My endurance is getting better and I need that for my two main goals of the year. At the same time I am actually getting my pace up and this is just an added bonus. I'm loving every run, long and short.
Happy training everyone! I hope you are also loving every workout.
