Mission to get fit 2011 – Update 4

Dear, oh dear, oh dear!!!!

Last week turned out to be a complete wash out on the training front.  Went all the way to lovely Lake Como with great intentions and running gear packed in the case only to return with it still neatly folded having not seen the light of day!

Got back on the training program this week with a great 45 minute run earlier in the week and a superb hill training session last night.  I'm very worried no about how I'm going to manage 10k.  I really could do with another 2 or 3 of weeks where in reality I have just 7 days to go until the first of my 10k races.  Never the less I will do what I can but I'm not going to kill myself over the next week by trying to cram in extra training sessions.  This will only play havoc with the shins and really won't help in the long term.  I really should have taken a step backwards to re-do week 4 of the training plan but if I'm to stand any hope of completing the full 10k distance I need to get my long run up to an hour this week, so onwards to week 5.
