Week ending 17th July

57.6 mpw, 8:55 min/mile

With the Swiss Alpine Ultra looming, this past week should have been the start of the taper. However, with few high mileage runs, I ran the Fairlands Valley Spartans 50k yesterday, albeit as an ‘easy run’, while the remainder of the week was training as normal. Although the 50k was meant to be easy, and it was for about 40k, it certainly felt tough at the end, and the thought of another 20 miles was not a nice one. In fact, I continue to question if I am sufficiently prepared.

This means that with less than a fortnight to go, this week should start to see a noticeable reduction in training. So maybe I shouldn’t enter the Dereham 5k on Sunday.
