Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Its all about the base!
Ive been having some good talks with Ray this week over training, over the past few months Ray has been putting sessions in for me to build up to a half marathon in a couple of weeks.
Well after the lack of long training, specially runs. Even though i feel ive got some good tempo runs under my belt i just dont feel i will do myself justice on a half marathon, therefore im going to concentrate on the triathlons coming up.
So whats next? Well after speaking with Ray regarding what the next steps are. We are deciding to go into the base phase slightly earlier than planned ready to build up to the triathlons.
So this week is the first week in base training and so far its going well, so happy days. Hope this continues and all the sessions will be ticked off, let it continue. Next week im going to be looking at the next phase and hopefully getting some good, solid foundations built.
