First run for the new year

I did the first run for the new year:

Plus a short fast run after:

I did 5min on the cross trainer before the run and another 20 minutes after.

I also did a run - the last one for the year:

And again a shorter faster running after:

I also did a 40 minute session on the cross trainer on new years eve, that was hard.

From the data recorded it does appear that my fitness is slowly building. My heart rate is marginally lower in my latest run compared to earlier ones  where my pace is comparable. I should see a good improvement in the next couple of weeks.

I have had a Christmas/New Year period where I have over consumed both food and alcohol.  I have resolved to abstain from alcohol as per last year and the year before, so I should have better energy levels soon and thus be able to train harder as well as recover better after hard sessions.

Heels are OK, left is completely good, right is a little sensitive at the beginning but nowhere near as bad as it had been in the past.

Now I need to make a training plan - Next blog post.
