Took an easy week last week and no matter what the legs just felt awful heavy and the required effort for the pace I was doing was just not as expected because of this.
For the most part as the legs didn't feel right I did next to no running, however for Saturday instead of doing a LSR for 18-20miles I opted for a faster 13.1mile distance at a easy pace on a hilly route.
The hilly route in question is Callan to Kells and back view Newtown, the Newtown road is a challenging run back but its a enjoyable route as the roads aren't very busy and I always enjoy running through Kells Castles.
Planning for a harder week next week.
Last weeks training was
Thursday: 6miles @ 7:48min/mile & 3.5miles @ 17:41min/mile
Saturday: 13.1miles @ 8:15min/mile
