The last seven days for me has been a good week for me with some quality sessions in. Last Thursday I managed a decent track session of 5 x 2km @ Half Marathon pace. A very pleasing session in tough conditions. This was followed up with a treadmill tempo of 4 miles @ 5.30 pace earlier this week as icy roads meant steady running only was possible.
Tonights track session was one of the best of the year for me with a 20 x 400m session in the bag. The intention was to run this at around 10km pace and limit the recovery to 1 minute. In the end I went much quicker and averaged more like 3km pace for the 400s. Especially pleased with the second half of the session where I managed to hold the session together despite the increasing fatigue in my legs.
Congratulations to Sharon Gayter who tonight smashed the World Record for running 7 days on a treadmill by running over 468 miles in less than 7 days. Now if it was me doing it I would be on my cool down now and reflecting on the glory of being a World Record Holder, catching up on sleep, watching a bit of Corrie on V+ and eating copius amounts of pasta to aid recovery! Not a chance with Sharon she wants to smash the record and is continuing up to 12pm tomorrow.
I reckon Sharon is going to continue until she hits the 500 mile mark at least - maybe a new version of the Proclaimers "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" might be in order to celebrate
Please help Sharon with her chosen charities and donate here....
Well done Sharon!
