Monday 4 miles
Tuesday 10 x 3mins fast 1 min rest
Took it easy on the individual distance this week but ran 5 times which could even be a record. Have the Denbies 10 next Sunday which should be good. Ran a good fast training 10 on Sunday round Banstead, so that should stand me in good stead. Was nice to run round there knowing that I only had to 10 miles instead of the longer training runs of recent months.
Think my time last year at Denbies was just over 1 hour 11 so it would be good to beat that. The course starts with a good hard climb through the vineyard, a mile or so along the north downs before a fast decent to Wotton- then back over the ridge and as hard as you can go back down the vineyard. Last year I set off to fast so am planning on holding a little back for a good finish.
Picked up some new Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11's today from the nice folk at Sweatshop in Clapham; so hopefully I've got a good shoe as the millage increases towards the ultra.
On the bread side some pretty rubbish sourdough baked this week that didn't rise and makes very chewy sandwiches, still going to press on to master the baking of this though.
