Slightly ahead of the 24 miles per week average I need, but there are still 50 weeks left to go and anything can happen!
As with week 1 I can definitely say I wouldn't have braved some of the cold, rain and wind we have had this week if it wasn't for this challenge.
Sunday saw round 4 of the Winter Walking League at Ronaldsway in, surprisingly, cold and very windy conditions.
In previous years I tend to get slightly quicker each round but this year I have been getting slower!
Round 1 - NSC 60:38
Round 2 - Andreas Man flu
Round 3 - St Johns 62:36
Round 4 - Ronaldsway 63:01
Not quite sure what's happening here but I think too much beer & food over December could be to blame.
On the positive side my St Johns and Ronaldsway times are less than a minute slower than my best for those venues despite being quite a few pounds heavier , so once I address that issue I should be back on track.
I am now 2 weeks into Heart Rate Training and I think it's going well but it's a little early to draw any conclusions just yet. I will leave it another couple of weeks until I have more data before I share my experiences.
