Oh I just seem to be too busy these days. April finished ages ago, but I haven't counted up my numbers yet. It doesn't take long as a lot of it was post marathon recovery and heavy on the resting.
Ran - 10x = 60.6 miles
Cycled - 1x = 10.2 miles
1 Race - Brighton Marathon PB!!
Since the start of May, I haven't increased my running mileage much. It's almost a full month since the marathon, but my longest run so far has been just over 4 miles. I think it's about time I upped that a bit, but with no current goal, I'm enjoying lots of easy, scenic, fun runs. I need to start looking for new goals...
Away from running, I did have a great bike ride last week. I had been looking forward to it for a while, and last Thursday I finally had the time for a good long cycle. I headed towards the coast but took the long way round. It was a sunny day and quite warm, and the view by the sea was lovely.
I cycled along next to the beach towards the town centre.
Then I locked the bike up for a while and popped into a cafe with my kindle! I completely undid all my calorie-busting exercise with a huge slice of chocolate cake and a coffee. I shouldn't have indulged really, but it was too good to resist.
Then I got back on the bike and decided I ought to add a few miles on to counteract the chocolate. I took a different route home which went through a park and alongside a lake.
My bike is such a poseur...
It ended up as 20 miles, which was more than I had planned. I really enjoyed having the time to take it easy and not have to rush.
Now the summer is here, I hope to fit in plenty more long bike rides while the kids are still at school (although I won't always treat myself to chocolate cake...)
