Up to now I’ve never really seen the point of going out and doing 2 or 3 miles at a snail’s pace when I feel I can go much further and faster – it hardly seems worth lacing up the shoes! However, they’re in the training guide I’m following and my mentor Dave has maintained their value for helping to recover from the long runs. Well, tonight I finally felt the benefit as all the little twinges left over from Saturday’s 18 miles have completely gone so maybe I just needed to accumulate enough wear & tear before I felt it!!
See you later in the week for more tempo running and then my first 20-miler at the weekend.
