THIS WEEKS UPDATE

This week was me getting back into running, my plan is to be able to run 10 miles comfortably by the end of the year.

This week I managed to get out three times.

It all started on Wednesday morning. I managed to get up early and run 3.79 miles.

I was heading to Anfield later in the day and therefore needed to run before I started working.

On Thursday I was planning to go and join the running club, but due to a stupid amount of traffic leaving Anfield I didn’t get home to gone 1 am and was tired and didn’t want to drive so I took the kids trick or treating and then went for 2.27 mile run.

Not my best run but I was tired.

Sunday morning Long Run.

I will be honest I had wanted to run 5 miles and while I could have, it didn’t go to plan.

I was sweeting more than normal and this was running into my eyes (on longer runs or races I put vaseline above my eye brows to stop sweat dripping down) but I didn’t do that this morning.

Another issue I had was I ran in my glasses rather than my contact lenses and they kept steaming up and to the point I was stopping every couple of hundred metres to clean them so I could see. 

I therefore decided at 3.55 miles to call it a day.

Total Milage: 9.61

Overall, I am pretty happy. I am getting my body used to running three times a week.

Next Weeks Plan

Tuesday:

I will either be going to the running club to do a fast internal session or going with my dad to watch Liverpool at Anfield.

If I do go to Anfield I will go for a run in the morning before I start working.

Thursday:

A couple of miles – 3 or 4. My oldest son I will drop off at Beavers and while he is there I will go for a run. This is a club night but I can’t do both. 

This will be at a steady pace and could be longer than 3 or 4 miles. I need to work out some routes starting at his Beavers hut and finishing in the same place.

Weekend:

I plan on running 5 miles next weekend, not sure yet if that will be on Saturday or Sunday.

Nice steady pace.
