There was lots of highlights this week.
First and foremost was getting back to the track for the first time in 5 weeks. Although 20:49 for 5km is well off my best, due the heat and the humid and lack of speed work I did not feel too bad about it. Next I topped 300km for July which is always a milestone I am happy to pass in any month but in mid summer it is extra special.
I kept my word and moved to non-alcoholic beer from August 1st and after a few choice words from Steve L (ask yourself “how bad do you want this”) I started dragging myself our of bed again in the early hours and completed my longest run since February.
I also entered the Tokyo Marathon 2014 and ordered the Race Ready running shorts which I have heard so much about.
Finally, I topped the week off with going over 90km for the first time in a long time which is another good milestone for me.
There still is a lot of hard work to be done over the next 16 weeks, but I feel that I am getting back on track.
