Fan Dance training starts

The plan this evening was:
  1. Go for a run
  2. Enjoy it
After that there was no plan although secretly I craved to have some "Me" time and just get lost in my own little world as frankly I had enough of people today and wanted to enjoy the solace of being by myself.

As soon as I stepped from the door I found the rain coming down and though that instead of trudging a set piece route why not do some hill reps...so I did. Running around the corner I went to a private road that has a steep 1:5 rise and  decided to do the following:
  1. Run at 90% effort for 50m
  2. Jog back
  3. Run at 90% effort for 100m
  4. Jog back
  5. Repeat 25 times
Then carry on up to the top of the hill and take the long loop home, by repetition 20 my lungs were busting but I was feeling very strong leg-wise. Great  therapy tonight, loved the loneliness of the long distance runner.

I now have to do 2 sessions a week until the race so it looks like this is my Thursday training from now on with Sunday put aside for a full pack on the Downs.
