Bushy 11 mile training run – 4th June 2012

With the combination of the Queens Diamond Jubilee weekend activities and starting my taper I didn’t do my usual 20 miles on Sunday, and instead opted for an 11 mile on Monday morning as it was a Public Holiday (thanks HRH). I’ll probably drop my mileage down to 3 x 10 mile runs (two during the week and one on Sunday) for the next 2 weeks but still keep my Kettle bell sessions up to work on my quads for the hills!

It was nice doing my Bushy run in the morning for a change, and I saw more runners than usual as Thames Triathlon were running a Triathlon with the Cycling,Pool, Running changeover being Hampton outdoor pool. Hence the stream of cyclists turning into the entrance and wet runners exiting.

Bushy was fairly quiet, with just the Britmilfit people running about in their coloured teams doing press-ups etc. I ran part of the parkrun course but then went off on paths to get in the extra miles. My Luna’s were great as usual, although I forgot the tape on the top of my foot (I sometimes get the skin under the knot rubbed off) I had no problems. I will tape the top of my feet for the Ultra however.

The deer looked impressive with their “velvet” covered antlers getting quite large.

My 1 litre of Nuun just about lasted and I didn’t have to take any bloks during my 2 hour run, but I will during the Ultra.

Next run will be a 10 miler on Thursday night I expect.
