Training required

With the RNLI Reindeer 10k just weeks away, I realised today just how much work I’m going to have to put in to avoid another trip to the house of pain come the end of the race!

My 26 minute 19 second (4,700m) lunchtime run was fine itself, but it’s how I felt after it that bothered me – merely highlighting that I am far from ready for the event. I’m also lacking the competitive edge you get when training with someone else – which is always a great motivator, but alas at the moment I’m on my own.

Despite it being November, conditions were very pleasant and surprisingly warm for the time of year – and long may it continue!
