With only a month to go until I meet up with fellow TeamTrail2014 folks and fly off to Chamonix, I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing over the past few weeks.
I have just entered the Glen Coe mountain marathon in October, which is one of my major goals for this year.http://glencoemarathon.co.uk/
This is a fairly new event set in the Scottish highlands and takes in some of the most amazing scenery the country has to offer.
With the race being the full 26.2 miles and with 1608m of ascent, I’ve been having a look at a plan for my training and studying local routes where I can incorporate a similar effort.
At the moment I am building up the distance on my long hilly run(s) and continuing with speed work, tempo and easy sessions throughout the week.
If I find that I have the energy on a rest day( And with a little help from Torq nutrition) I’ve been going a long cycle which is nice for a change and it seems to be helping with muscle soreness too.
Arran has miles and miles of forestry trails as well as long glens and steep ridges.
Over the next few months I have plans of completing some big local mountain routes as well as continuing to train on forestry trails.
I’m looking forward to sharing my new routes!
