This was more of a fun week than last week. There were no falls, for one!

My hills workout was sort of interesting. I have a route with a range of hills (from about 50m to 400m long), but my grade-adjusted pace was pretty much all over the pace! Up the largest hill, it was its fastest (5:18/km), and down the largest hill, it was at its slowest (6:06/km). I use that downhill stint as a recovery, but I’m clearly giving myself a little bit too much recovery!

The rain pushed our long adventure around the Bristol countryside back to Sunday, but I did manage to get around 16km, which has been a trial the last few weeks, so w00t on that front. The picture is from a peaceful jog around Penarth.

This week is a tough one with a lot of long commutes and drives, so I’m going to give myself a little bit of a break and a bit more rest and slot in some lunchtime runs.
