Good Weekend Running

As I mentioned in my previous posting the target this weekend was a four miler on Saturday followed by a ten mile run on Sunday. No problems there  although my legs certainly feed ‘used’ today.

Non-running wise it wasn’t a good weekend as all as Blackpool were relegated back to the Championship. It could be worse… just look at Preston :)

Saturday – 4 miles

The plan for Saturday’s 4 miles was 9 min/miles and as usual I found it difficult to keep my pace down. It ended up at 8:36 min/miles and actually felt tired for the last mile (even though it’s downhill!)

Splits: 8:52, 8:57, 8:28, 8:05

Sunday – 10 miles

As I found the last part of Saturday’s run quite difficult I was a bit unsure about running 10 miles (for the first time since February). As soon as I’d started, however, my legs felt great and I found the run very enjoyable… despite the wind. I was also a bit adventurous (for me) deciding to run 4 miles on “un-ventured-on-foot” roads which perhaps added to the enjoyment factor.

Target was 9 min/miles but once again I went a bit faster although just outside of the McMillan calculator thingy’s boundary for a a long run (based on my recent ‘undulating’ 10k time)

Distance: 10.33 miles
Mile splits: 8:15, 8:46, 9:04, 8:56, 8:39, 8:54, 9:06, 9:08, 8:31, 8:19, 3:00
Ascent/Descent: 658ft, 659ft
