End of Week 10 on my Wales Coastal Path Challenge and I have arrived at Whitesands Bay, which looks beautiful in this picture.
Its is funny as I have managed a few miles on the actual sand this week, although Strava seems to think I was in the water....
I started to up my mileage to see how I would feel doing the marathon in October.
In total this week 43.4 miles covered, which is my biggest week yet.
I did complete over 9 miles with some 'jeffing' so was really pleased with this week.
A number of my running friends have been so helpful with tips for Marathon distance, some really funny suggestions, but the one thing that came out was 'Strengthening'.
So this week I took a trip to see Ash at Colosseum Gym.
What a great first session it was.
Ash has given me loads of 'homework' to do, which as well as a weekly gym session should really help to get me through my first marathon distance. With continued work I can aim then to improve on my time.
After this first session I ran most of the way home and my legs felt great, moving really well much quicker than they have been.
Some additional warm up bits before todays run and I did my best 5k time for weeks.
Thanks Ash, looking forward to having you helping and supporting me on this journey.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
