Week 6 Half Marathon Training

Post holiday I had a bit of mileage catch-up. I’ve also got an organised 18Km social run at the end of the week so my long run won’t be so long

Monday 27 August

bank Holiday bonus run on the Ridgeway trails. Took a run from home up to the Ridgeway via Harwell village and Harwell Campus. Good mix of road, footpath and trail with some good hills. Was a bit wet underfoot following some heavy rain over the weekend but a great 12 Km out and 12 Km back. The hills are roughing on this route and after a long journey home from holiday and seeing family the legs were tired!
