Chronicles Of A Super Vet
Ran with Rob over the big sand dunes.
1 hour 3 mins, plus ran down and back.
Total = 1 hour 23 mins
Now back in 2009 Rob finished an amazing 2nd in the world hardest road marathon [Great Langdale Marathon].
Sadly shortly after he had a very nasty none running related accident resulting in a serious knee injury.
Thankfully after an operation to repair a damaged cartilage and a torn ligament Rob is at last getting back into training.
I felt much better today, as Wednesdays long run turned into a death march as the after effects of Sundays 20 mile race took hold, I cut the time down from 3 hours to 2 hours 35 mins to help my recovery.
30 x 1 min [ starting at below marathon pace and building up to 10k pace] with 30 sec Rec.
Felt stiff at first but soon got going, nocking out most my efforts at higher 10k pace.
Hillside loop easy, right calf muscle felt tight. = 32 mins
