Quality and Quantity

Week 4 of 8 into Berlin Marathon prep, I try to put a bit more quality into my runs this week. I even manage to turn up to local parkrun, without falling asleep on the way there (read last week’s post here). It doesn’t go great though, heavy legs after busy week.

After run I am supposed to be working at the Bear Grylls Survival Academy, but course is cancelled. So I take the family up the mountain for our own little survival school. We eat wood sorrell, gorse flower and blackberries. We see an adder, a buzzard AND most amazingly of all, a dormouse!

Sunday feels like one of those days where I do not get to sit down at all. Evening 10 mile run done in the rain. Get home soaked and pretty tired, think about watching a movie, but fall asleep instead.
