Training diary: week 8

Downs Link Route

Running picked back up this week – thank God – after a few niggles. I’ve been staying down in Sussex and running on the Downs Link from Henfield. North to Southwater is pancake flat and good for long runs; South is my hilly route, and Bramber and back (6 small hills) is a solid 1hr run. The result is that my pace is improving within the 60-75% of max heart rate zone; and I also felt comfortable on today’s brick, running at 7.30s after 2hrs on the bike. Of course, if I want proper hills then Devil’s Dyke is the destination! (see week 7 cycling).
