A short one today…
This morning, I headed into Southampton for a quick meeting at Southampton City Council with Head of Events, Craig Lintott.
Craig and I have been in regular contact over the last couple of years by email discussing Southampton parkrun, Southampton Juniors parkrun, Lordshill Mile series and the two main Lordshill Road Runners road races so it was good to meet him in person. Craig has been instrumental in helping get these events approved so really can’t thank him enough for his support.
As a fellow parkrunner with 58 parkruns completed, I’m sure we’ll see each other fairly regularly in the future.
As the meeting finished earlier than expected, I drove home and decided to head out for a run and covered 11.82km (7.33 miles) at a LSR pace of a little over 6 mins per km. Scarily, I believe this is one of my longest runs for a while!
Once home, my right Achilles was quite tender so, for once, I stretched it and it made a big difference.
With only the weekend remaining, I’m heading for the STC swim tomorrow morning (as I’m volunteering at Southampton parkrun next Saturday) and then enjoying a rest day on Sunday.
Will summarise my training week in a post at some point over the weekend.
