Avalanche Endurance Events : Winter Fan Dance 2015 training : Week 2

Week 2 and I need to keep things going through a very busy working week.

This week’s blog is brought to you by Marcothon 2014, because without that I would not have bothered with half of these runs.

Marcothon 2014

Monday 08 December 2014

Monday was not a good day for personal reasons.  I eventually got out for a run at gone 2100, and it was very cold outside.  If it had not been for the fact that I am doing Marcothon through December I would not have bothered.  Even so, I got a PR on the Holywell Hill Climb segment on Strava, which is always pleasing.

  1. Run (St Albans) – 3.5 miles – 32 minutes 43 seconds

Work got in the way of things this time and so I found myself going for a run at just before 2300.  Once again it was very cold out there.  I did get a PR on the Sandridge Road Climb segment on Strava, but I had only run it once before.

  1. Run (St Albans) – 3.3 miles – 33 minutes 08 seconds

It is really getting stupid now.  I got out for my run just before 2330 because that was the first opportunity I got to go.  I got a PR on the Prospect Road segment on Strava.

  1. Run (St Albans) – 3.2 miles –  27 minutes 03 seconds

I was in Salford overnight so that I was ready for a business meeting in the morning, so I took my run around the Salford Quays, which was fun.  I was happy with the pace of the run.

  1. Run (Salford) – 3.6 miles – 32 minutes 03 seconds

Friday 12 December 2014

I had not managed to get in a morning run in Salford, so had to go out for one when I got home in the evening.  I got a PR on the Holywell Hill Climb segment on Strava and a 2nd fastest time on the Prospect Road segment.

  1. Run (St Albans) – 3.1 miles – 28 minutes 27 seconds

We went to a new parkrun location for us at Panshanger, near Hertford, and it was an entirely off-road course.  It looked stunning in the morning frost and as it will be excellent training for the OCRs I run, we will go there more often.

  1. parkrun (Panshanger) – 3.1 miles – 31 minutes 36 seconds

Sunday 14 December 2014

I ran down to the gym with Debbie and while she went inside for a spin class I carried on for some hill repeats, doing three of them and putting in a PR and a third fastest time with two of them on the Verulamium Path Climb segment on Strava, which I was very happy with.  I think that shows the progress I have made with my running.

  1. Run (St Albans) – 5.1 miles – 57 minutes 37 seconds

Positives from this week – I got a few PRs along the way on Strava segments.
