Getting back on track

After a a nasty cold and cough I've managed to get back on track with some running. Just in time for the hayfever to kick in, but having some sunshine to lure me out through the front door is preferable to the cold biting winds we've had this winter.

I'm starting with some shorter runs and trying to mix it up a bit with faster intervals in my effort to speed me up.

A couple of 2.5 mile runs with 1 mile warm ups, then 60 second fast runs at about 95% effort and recoveries down to a comfortable heart rate, followed by a jog home to warm down.

I have to admit to being a bit of a fair weather runner. Most other runners I speak with seem to be out come rain or shine, but my first winter and a 10K race in a sleet and snow storm put me off, even though it did produce my best 10K time ever, I was obviously encouraged to get back into the warmth as fast as possible.


Jenny lives in Peterborough and has run the Perkins Great Eastern Run every year since 2009 after discovering running later in life
