Weekly Rrrrrround-up

3 May 2011


Last week marked the penultimate week of my half-marathon training, during which I managed to go running 5 times and write about it 0 times. In my defence, it was an odd week, bookended by two public holidays, with a royal wedding, a hen night, and a real wedding in the middle. I could and should have squeezed in writing about my running as well as running itself, and will promise to do better in future.

To summarise progress, one week from Race Day:

  • I ran 31 miles;
  • my pace is looking good, averaging 7-minute miles during Friday’s 6 mile tempo run ;
  • my health is looking bad, with a cold contracted mid-real wedding, which continues to gather its own pace;
  • the weather is still amazing; and
  • running  just before a Royal Wedding begins is a lovely, though quite lonely, thing to do.

Here’s a photo from my 10.30am run on Friday, looking down towards the city from Ally Pally park. I saw one other person in the park, he had a thermos of coffee and a stack of newspapers and looked very pleased with himself. He was not wearing red, white or blue.
