Week 8 – Day 1

No warm up, 6km run, 5 min stretching.

Despite still having a sore throat and muscles, I decided to go ahead with the Week 8 – Day 1 training session. Alarm clock went off at 5:40am as usual, but I must’ve knocked it off in my sleep and did not make it out that morning. I had two other possibilities, do the run during lunch break or in the evening. As the evening run would not be fair on my family, I got out at lunch.


It was a cold but sunny day in Galway. The course I ran was completely flat and I think I started with a too high of a pace, again! By km 4 my legst started to hurt quite a bit and decided to cut the planed 7k run to 6k. The combination of not feeling too well and missed two running sessions last week definitely had an impact. Nevertheless, I am happy that I did it. Tomorrow is another training day with 6km easy run and 100m intervals. Will have to set the 5:40am alarm at highest volume.
