Mixed Training

The last week I have tried to combine some hill work, with some strength work on the bike and fit in a little rest somewhere in the middle! The plan is to do the NUI Galway 8km run on Saturday to test myself at a different distance and work a bit on my speed on the road. My basic thinking at the moment is to mix up my training to keep things interesting for the winter. A combination of the gym, the road, the trails and the hills should work out nicely.  This combined with a few good hill sessions and a mountain or two thrown in and I should be able to bring my times down in Sea to Summit race.

What are peoples thoughts on these three books? Born to Run, Eat and Run, and Chi Running.

I really enjoyed Eat and Run and think I learnt alot from this book. The idea of diet being as important as Scott Jurek has made it is amazing. Born to Run is a great story but I haven’t managed to try bare foot running just yet. I plan on minimalist shoes soon and see how things go from there. I heard good things about Chi Running but have yet to read this one.

A few  sessions from the last week!
