after my commute into work (previous post) i was foolish enough to come back the same
i find running home at night after a day at work mentally harder as i just want to get back and have it over and done with
add to that the heat and the sight of mrs uc and a few beers at our local couldn't come soon enough
anyway 33 miles on a workday merits reward right?
next morning it was out again early doors for a run with my c2c human running accomplice richard (shown below stuffing his chops post said run)
4 hours of hard slog as the heat kept rising
by the end of it i felt a bit giddy
i hadn't eaten or drunk enough so the full monty breakfast roll from the posh nosh van in macc forest was eagerly devoured..charlie opting for a more purist organic sausage sandwich
the next morning, after a bbq and too much alcohol the night before, it was time to get out to complete my mission
a little 5 miler (topless would you believe it) and my goal of a 100 miles for the week had been achieved, sorry smashed!! with 102 miles bagged and tagged
in fact my first ever training week of three figures..how anyone can constantly hit those mileage levels beggars belief!
so nearly 6 months of training covering 1013 miles, with 5 weeks covering greater than 75 miles and my biggest back to back weeks totalling 141.5 miles.
never having trained for anything like this i just hope its enough, too late now if it isn't!
before hitting the bbq again i started plotting the route, getting as far as kirby stephen, 86 miles in..didn't feel too hard either!
and if you look carefully you can see one hot dog basking in the heat..leaving me to do all the hard work..you can't get the staff these days!
