I’m still alive

The next post I wrote was meant to be my write up of the North Downs Way 100 and I have started but the last few weeks have been somewhat hectic. I will leave my commentary on the NDW100 to the post when I get it done but what have I been doing since then?

Well, I am keeping up with the cycling to and from work although having moved home (this is why I have had no time!) my commute is just under half what it was to and from work. Getting to work is now easy as its all down hill, but this means that getting home is all up hill and pretty taxing on the legs at times.

Running wise I have focused on rehab of my various injuries and the mileage has come right down. At the moment I am actually running very little but have joined my local Parkrun and have been working on running faster resulting in a new PB for a 5km run, 21:25. With a Duathlon on the weekend and a 10km in OCtober the distance running is put on the back burner, my plan is to complete these events and start introducing the distance again to build up to the NDW50 next year, my plan is to smash my previous time!
