Five-Thirty

Monday night is club night. I wasn’t there last week, and I won’t be there next week, so I wanted to make sure I got the most out of it tonight.

I ended up with the 30s, although this was more by accident than design. I wasn’t really paying attention as the different groups were leaving and by the time I realised what was happening I was left with the last ten or so in the room.

No big deal. I was always going to do five miles tonight regardless, so I just made up the different after the club run.

As it turned out the 30s route was a bit challenging in places with a few short, sharp inclines to test the legs – and I’m happy to report they came through with flying colours. The fluid issues didn’t really affect me tonight, maybe a little towards the end but that was all.

After the club session had finished (approx. 4km) I ran an elongated route home to bring me up to my desired five miles, mostly downhill but that’s unavoidable seeing as I live ‘downhill’ from the town centre!

It wasn’t a terribly fast run throughout but it served a purpose, and that’s all I could really ask for.

In other news, my next race, which I just entered today, is the Storming The Castle 10k in Carrickfergus on Sunday.

It’ll be the first of four consecutive Sunday’s I could be racing, culminating in the Belfast Half Marathon on September 17th, so hopefully it’ll keep me mentally focused. I just need to alter my schedule slightly to fit in my longer runs in midweek because the weekends will be taken up earning some more bling!
