Week 9: How has it go to week 9 already……Anyway March is a really key month in my training as the East Hull 20 takes place on the 18th March, whilst my weekly mileage is relatively low compared to others I feel my general fitness, engine, grit & a strong mental attitude gets me through.
Another summer league is already upon us and it looks likely to be the best year ever if last night’s race is anything to go by!
Here are the results for your delectation:
As ever, if you spot any errors then get in touch and I’ll endeavour to correct them as soon as I can (except the handicaps……….nothing to do with me).
When friends staying in Malta for the winter invited me to join them to run the Malta half marathon in February, my first thoughts were “I can run 13.1 miles for a week in the sun”. The down side to this was all the training had to be done during winter when on the days I was facing a blizzard outside I would rather have been staying warm indoors, but my fellow EHH running buddy Sheila Maddison was there, always encouraging and pushing me along to do that extra mile.
The East Yorkshire Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) put on some great events, probably most of you will have done the Rudolph’s Romp at the beginning of December but, to note, they also do two bi-annual events at the beginning of January – the Scarborough Rock and Filey Flyer. The events both have a long and short routes and this year it was the turn for the Filey Flyer.
