Many of you are aware that I was at the Freeman Hospital this last week for an operation to try to sort out the abnormal heart rhythm that I have been getting at times when running. Just to forestall questions, unfortunately it looks like there is nothing that can be done to sort the problem out that wouldn't have a negative impact on my running, which sort of defeats the object of the exercise. This puts me in a difficult position moving forward and I am not sure just yet what direction I will take. My immediate plan is to return to training when I can (hopefully in a few days), accepting that there will be sessions that I have to pull out from. Beyond that I am uncertain what I will do. I would like to say a really big 'THANK YOU' to all of you who have been supportive and sending me kind words. It is great to know that I run with such a great group of individuals.
Plan for the week
Mon (7:30) - Hills. Cottingwood Lane. 10X 1:30 uphill back down in 2:00.
Wed (6:30) - Track 1600's. 1000m effort, then 2-4 X 1600m efforts with 2-3 min recoveries.
Thurs (6:30) - Short hills. King's Avenue after a LONG warm up with 4-6 strides. 10 x 10s hill sprints. 60-90s recoveries.
I won't be running on Monday. I plan to come to the track on Wednesday to meet a possible new group member. I may see if I can run slowly that night. Depending on how that goes, I may or may not be running on Thursday.
