We missed our last long run due to extreme cold and so had to cut it short. Nevertheless we did few 18K run's which is normally the max people train for half and than leave the few last Km for race day. I am sure I can finish the distance of 21K now with out being exhausted. I am dead at the end of long run but the recovery is much faster. I think part of it I have to attribute to weather. Running in cold weather is lot easier than running in Summer. As wrong as that sounds its the truth. People who struggle to breathe do find winter running hard but other wise winter running is lot less taxing on the body. If you religiously follow the dynamic and static stretch routine before and after the race there is a good chance you won't get in-juried in winter. Summer with the heat and humidity body looses water so fast and than muscles cramp and tighten up much faster.
I am thinking of signing up for the Good life Half in may. I am not sure what my schedule will be than so I cannot commit to it yet. I am going to continue to train for it and keep racking up the distance. I am going on a break for 2 weeks. I really wanted to do a race in Paris when I was going to be there. Unfortunately they don;t run as much in winter there.
To make up for the distance from Sunday I can twice a day when I could. I could not cover the full gap of distance but it was good. I also started the strength training routine. Again the break for next 2 weeks might reset lot of things but I hope it does not.
Not much to write again. Will be back to training in 2 weeks.
