6 miles – including 1,2,3mins hard reps twice with 3mins between each set. Tough as achilles playing up so tried to hold back

Lunch 5mile – 35mins
Eve – track session – 5*1k reps – 6mile. Held back to average 5.20 pace. Achilles getting better but need to be careful. Ice and easy running till Sunday now.

Spinning class – got to class 45mins early and onto the bike. worked harder on own then in the class Total 90mins

Decided to take day off to allow the achilles to recover. Need to be careful as dont want to risk it getting worse. Its only 1 day and the bigger picture is more important

Easy 12miles at 7.20 pace

Super cold so arranged to meet Martyn at 7am. Easy 10miles. Intro ride with Chorley Cycling club while Caz was working 33mile on bike.

15miles including easy 5, hard 5 sub 6mins pace and easy 5mile

Good week given the achilles niggle but Maria’s told me its nothing serioous which is a relief. I have let the inflammation get down with icing and now need to stretch it more….Plan to push hard next week and introduce more biking if Achilles is not improving by tue…

Total Running – 44miles. Biking time – 4.5hrs
