100+ miles in September #run1000miles | Phil Lengthorn

It’s been a good month on the running front: 100+ miles for September. Which means this month finally saw me get through the 700 mile mark. 

2017 mileage = 714

This week I’ve put in another 25+ mile week.
Monday = rest
Tuesday = 6.4 miles at the gym
Wednesday = 4 miles at the woods 
Thursday = 4 miles at the gym
Friday = 3.7 miles exploring locally
Saturday = 7 miles – Parkrun plus a few more
Sunday = rest 

I’ve also tried to avoid too much running at the woods in the Fivefingers – I wanted to give my feet a rest – last week with all the dodgy surfaces I’ve been running on, it…

1000 miles still just about in reach…. | Phil Lengthorn

Another week done. 5 days running this week. Which, when you consider it has been a busy week, I’m pretty pleased with. 
Monday = rest
Tuesday = 5 miles on the trails at the woods
Wednesday = rest
Thursday = 4.5 miles on the treadmill at the gym
Friday = 5 miles on the trails at the woods
Saturday = 3.6 miles on the trails at the woods
Sunday = 5.4 miles on the trails at the woods

My legs have felt very heavy and achy today, which I’m putting down to all the running on the muddy trails at the woods. Also, my feet have felt a bit sore, which I’m putting down to running in the…

It’s been a good week…running wise that is… | Phil Lengthorn

After last week’s 26+ miles, this week was all about doing much of the same. It ended up looking like this:
Monday – easy run at the woods with the dog
Tuesday – gentle run with Helen and the dog at the woods 
Wednesday – at the gym on the treadmill – fast
Thursday – rest day
Friday – at the gym on the treadmill
Saturday – steady Parkrun and a couple of extra miles
Sunday – easy run at the woods with the dog

Happy with the week – my legs are slowly starting to feel a bit stronger. In fact, Saturday’s Parkrun, which was my first one for a month or so, was good – did a reasonable…

A #run1000miles update… | Phil Lengthorn

Rewind back to the start of 2017 and I had this plan to take on the #run1000miles challenge. It seemed doable, it worked out 2.7 miles a day. 

After about 6 months I was indeed pretty much on target; halfway through the year I had 500 miles done. 

However, in July I had the bright idea to experiment with a bit of barefoot running and got myself a pair of Vibram Fivefingers. Which has been great, it has invigorated my running and all is good. The only downside has been the slow transition that is needed. I was aware that my mileage would drop off, but had every intention to pick up the…
