Running Injury-Free Again
2-8 July 2018
Week 4 of my training block for the Clacton Half Marathon based on Jack Daniels’ Running Formula.
Easy Miles – Wednesday and Friday
Slower than 7:00 per mile pace
Returning to my running steadily.
Ran 2 miles last night then another 5.3 miles this lunchtime with my running group. Feeling strong, but still at a sustainable pace. #Running pic.twitter.com/tL1kx0wvjS

Ran 4 miles in very hot conditions this afternoon. I'm glad I got to explore more of my local area but the lack of shade certainly slowed me down and made me sweat more than usual.#HeatWave2018 #Run pic.twitter.com/XO0pRe3dcy

Rest Days – Thursday and Saturday
After cross-training for much of June, I feel recovered from my shin pain. Although my running paces were slower than my intended race pace of 6:00 per mile, conditions have been particularly hot recently.
I accumulated 19 miles, and rather than ‘time on my feet’ I am happy that I am injury-free.
