Upping the Mileage Bit by Bit

Week of June 27 ~ July 3

7:38  71.9k/44.7 mi.

Continuing with the slow and steady stuff. Went from 60 mins to 70 mins on weekdays and from 90 to 100 on Sunday. Feeling ok!

Mon - Rest, physio
Tue - Gym workout, 70 mins
Wed - 63 mins with evening club 5k time trial. Ran slightly over 5:00 pace to finish in 25:24. Pleasant run.
Thu - 70 mins, physio, quads tight
Fri - Gym workout, 70 mins, quads sore
Sat - 75 mins (different course), quads still heavy
Sun - 100 mins, 16.2k. Out at 6:18/k, back at 6:00.
36 degrees C at 3:00. I always say I like the heat, so this was the test. And yes, I like the heat! It was a nice run, I wasn't even thirsty - fortunately, about 3/4 of it is in the shade. So much more preferable to cold weather.

My weight is 60.5kg to 61kg - not bad, but I'd like to be lighter.


  1. Very consistent week in hot conditions.

  2. Good that you're feeling okay Bob. I've put on a couple of kgs, but I can blame the winter and comfort food ;-)
