Seven Miles around Fornham Suffolk

I ran tired today. I felt tired before I started but still get myself out of the front door which was the biggest battle. The weather was cool,grey and damp with a hint of rain. I was back to wearing a hat and gloves for this session which was day 1 of week 4 of my Half Marathon  training.
I am following the Runners World SMART Coach training schedule which this week calls for another increase in mileage from 36 to 39 miles all told if I do it.

My shortest run now is 7 miles where as that was probably my longest distance for most of the 2nd half of 2009.

Todays 7 miles saw my do a time of 1hr 2mins 31 secs. Not quick and at a slower pace than yesterdays 11 miles but not surprising as I have 30 miles in the last 4 days.

However I again ran within the easy 9.20 pace that was called for on the schedule.

It being a Music Monday a phrase coined by Kenley at the Essence of Running  I listened to the album by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs  - It's Blitz and it being such a dull day my track of the day is Dull Life

It was also time for me to do another session on the One hundred push ups programme. After my last session I have retreated a bit and decided to do  Day 1 of week 6 again and to choose the easiest of the 3 options available.

So I did a 25, 30,20,15 and then a 40 . Wow that was hard.


  1. Glad to see you made it through your 7 miles at least. Very cool song man. I like the different tempos. You could do a little tempo run to this. lol. The push ups ahhh. I am doing week 1 again. As far as I am concerned, as long as you are taking your medicine, it doesn't matter how much water you down it with. Poor metaphor, I know. Excuse me please.

  2. Thanks Kenley much appreciated glad you liked the song
