Week Two

A bit late with the blog I know!

Training this week started out fulfilling my good intentions, then on Wednesday (Cross training- swimming) it snowed and we couldn't get to the baths so no training!! By Saturday I had developed a cough, sore throat and runny conk, so remembering the advice from my previous running days I decided to rest up and get myself well again. That finished off the training for week 2, so here's to week 3 and a full schedule.

It just served to remind me of how difficult it can be sometimes to get the miles in, but I shall keep at it, even if my expected time for the 10K gets longer.
