I posted a thread about 12 days ago, about my partner giving me the evil look about running while on holiday, and there was generally mixed feedback, which is understandable. But basicaly, we reached a comprimise, i would do shorter runs, and over less days.
Here is what i did.
The day before my camping holiday, i ran 13 miles, and then i ran about 5 miles on Thursday, the same on Sunday, and the same yesterday. Definitely less than what i am used too, but there was the problem of trying to keep my running gear dry for the days ahead, and fighting tiredness, since camping, is not 5 star holidaying, it is a hard slog, and although it is fun, it is also backbreaking work.
When i did do my runs, the first one, was basicaly the blind, not knowing what was round the next corner. Also there were some severe bends, with no way to move to one side, if traffic came, meaning i had to play chicken with oncoming traffic. But, the next two were good. I ran up the road next to my camp. Basicaly a long hilly road, about 0.7 mile long, and was a heck of a climb. I did that 4 times, plus the return journey down, and i made sure i stretched every day.
I am doing my first proper long run tomorrow, so will be interesting, and i have Seaford half next weekend, which is flat, and is 4 laps. I know i can complete it, but doing it in 1.30 something would be nice. My PB, was Brighton when i did 1.34.07.
Anyway here are my boring random thoughts...
