Training: Easy 5k (& a 60m Father’s Race!)

After a tough ten miles on Sunday and even with a day off yesterday, my legs felt tired this evening. This may have had something to do with running my ass of in the Father’s Race at my son’s school sports day.

Sports Day

A good day! My son won his race (well done Fletcher!), my wife won the mum’s race and I won the dad’s! I tell you, I’ve never run in a more competitive field as with the dads! And surprisingly, 60 metres of all out sprinting when you’re not used to it really takes it out of you!

Easy 5k

Once we were home from that, I headed out into the sunshine for my usual 5k loop, running it around 45 seconds slower than usual. Which was fine, I knew it was slower as I was running.

Next Training
Club night tomorrow with Purbeck Runners (prob some hills!) with races coming up on Fri and Sun.
