Here comes summer and my early starts?

I've not been doing badly, even the last couple of weeks it's been a bit warm for my long run on a Sunday, but I've managed reasonably well for me. I really don't handle the heat very well.

Last Sunday I covered 9 miles before it got too warm, with the help of a breeze and a few clouds to keep it cooler.

This week I've managed 4.8 miles which consisted of a 1 mile warm up and then intervals on Tuesday and 5 miles tempo run on Thursday. I feel I'm starting to get a bit more fitness back now.

The weekend is looming with that dreaded 10 miles, which really shouldn't be a problem but for the weather forecast!! Summer is actually here!!!

I know I will be testing the temperature and looking at the forecast until Saturday evening, at which point I have to decide whether to set my alarm for 5am, so that I can get out and run before the sun gets hot.

I could have an easy week, but was planning to save some shorter runs for the coming two weeks as I will be volunteering at The Willow Festival next week, at a friend's BBQ the following week and I really don't want to fall too far behind with the training schedule.

You may be saying 'she's already way ahead if she's on 10 miles', but having done this before I've hit problems, or had other things that have knocked holes in my training plans, so I like to keep ahead of the schedule, just in case. Typical of me, I like to have Plan A sorted and Plan B as backup, all ready to go.

I've still not managed to get hubby out to get any shots of me on the run, so you have to make do with my old ones.

Watch this space.... I'll be back to tell you if I saw silly o'clock on Sunday.

Finish of the PGER 2008 Fun Run

Pictured is me, still on the way with my lifestyle change and weight loss at the finish of the 2008 PGER 4K Fun Run.
I think I was around a size 16 at the time and finished the 4K in around 38 mins, my second race. I completed the Race for Life earlier the same year.

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