Instead of going for some mileage i ran about half a mile to a quiet spot in the sticks so i could do some lung busting shuttle runs. Very painful indeed. I mark out about 100 meters and then mark about one third, half way and two thirds then sprint to the first mark and back to the start then sprint to the second mark and back to the start and carry on doing that until i have completed all marks right up to the 100 meter point. It’s a killer but a good alternative to a tempo run.
The hail and snow came crashing down when i was out and this photo does not convey how dramatic it all was………..well it wouldnt would it?
