‘Work’ and training in Mallorca
I was fortunate recently to head out to Mallorca for ‘work’ with ONRunning and this doubled-up as a condensed training week too.
Following the trip I have been tapering for my triathlon. Recovery is a vital part of training, and having rest weeks refuels the body.
Half Marathon – just a warm-up!
The inaugural North London Half Marathon was my first training race and coming only 5 weeks into my training I felt it came too early for me to perform at my best.
It was an absolute must psychologically to set a PB, regardless of how much time I had put into training. I set a target of sub-1:45 and was determined to prepare well, with a taper and eating well the day before.
I ended up running well in 1:41:18, hitting my goal easily (although of course as soon as I finished I wished I’d run sub-1:40!). You can check out my run stats on Strava here:
