Summary: So, first week of Feb. Had a bit of time for last week to sink in. My response? What happens when the headwind strengthens? You grit your teeth and go all out! So this week I’ve spread the net. Monday – Joined the gym. Tuesday – Went for a hill run with Town and Country Harriers. Wednesday – did some proper drills and speed work on track with Bristol & West AC. And then I wrapped it up on Saturday with an 8k PB followed by hill sprints! Hit. Back. Harder.
The only problem is my calves. They feel like they have been ripped to shreds, malfunctioning! I’m not sure I can carry on at this intensity if I don’t get them sorted. BUT! Welcome to the next level. Shit just got serious in a practical way. The biggest boost is having a gym to go to for cross training and some more structured training with Bristol and West. This should hopefully start to level the playing field.
