It has been a struggle this week to get any running in as I have been working long hours. So tonight I decided to push the run a bit harder, almost punishing myself for failing to get any running in - which of course is crazy. However if I miss a run it plays at the back of my mind until eventually I find time to get a run in and then feel like a runner again.

Even though I have been working hard as soon as I got going I felt quite good on my feet and decided to run a bit quicker than normal training run pace. I was generally ok with this for the first half an hour though the last ten minutes I must have sounded a bit like a steam train. Coming along Risbygate Street a lady turned full round nearly 50 yards away - I must have been puffing by this stage.

I could feel I was struggling a little for breath and I was glad to get to the finish in a new pb for this course of 41.30. This is half a minute faster than I have run this course before and a full two minutes quicker than just before Christmas so it was good.

I got my entry form this week for the Bury Nearly Ten Race in February . I am number 643. Now I have a race to focus on and hopefully I can get some proper training in.
