I have just been away for a short break to Devon as part of my taper and a well-deserved holiday. This was relaxing, with a few walks and a 15km run in Dartmoor National Park.
One of my favourite aspects of training for RTTS has been finding new places to run and exploring the trails getting out of London. It also makes me miss my time living in Christchurch, NZ and all the accessible trails you have nearby.
So the last two weeks have been relaxed with only a couple of runs. I have been more focused on conditioning and have been on the foam roller regularly to work out the tightness and improve mobility.
The previous two weeks were meant to be my main training load weeks but unfortunately, I sprained my ankle 15 km into my long run in week one, then only managed one short run later in the week.
The following week the Profeet Run Lab team were out in the beautiful surroundings of Chamonix in France product testing insoles and footwear.
There was a lot of hiking in the mountains and we also managed to squeeze in a mountain ascent interval session. There are many words that come to mind for the run session but needless to say it was hard work!
