This week was a full on monster – 4 sessions covering hills (Monday), 8 miles (Tuesday), 16 miles (Thursday) and 10 miles on Sunday. And it showed. I was exhausted at the end of all that and the holiday was most welcome
The long run was very draining and at many points I was tempted by short cuts and heading back early. Bloody mindedness won out however and I got around albeit in not particularly good form.
A long drive to Dorset on Saturday morning heralded the start of a week’s holiday with friends, including 10 kids aged 4 and under and the next rest week in the on-going cycles of training.
