Penultimate Juneathon Day! I’ve managed to run every day this month and I calculate that, with tomorrow’s last lope, I will have run around 84 miles. Many of the runs have been short. I’m used to longer distances with rest days. I think I’ve felt more tired this month. Monday will definitely be a rest day!
I ran in the inaugural Bury St. Edmund 5k parkrun this morning. Very enjoyable course through parkland grass and woodland trail. We took two friends along and later had coffee with an ultra runner who does distances like 100 miles in 20 or 24 hours. This is more to do with endurance and time management rather than speed. You need to eat and rest as well as run. That set me thinking about walking/running combinations again
