This Week In Running #8

The one where Yuki stole Boston!

What a week! Callum Hawkins detonated at the gold coast and Yuki kawauchi steals the show at Boston. It was a tale of two halves with the gold coast being a scorcher and Callum unfortunately suffering heat stroke and collapsing with 2k to go! If you haven’t seen the footage it was heartbreaking and i hope Callum comes back faster and stronger.

Fast forward 24 hours to Boston and winter had returned with heavy rains and freezing winds Marathon Talk podcast favourite Yuki Kawauchi battled it out in typical vest and short shorts to take his first Boston win,i’ve been a massive fan of Marathon talk for years and it felt like a family member had won!

I’ve had a busy week training wise this week with 6 out of 7 days running.I hadn’t planned it but my coaching session on wednesday was using pairs and with an odd number i had to jump in and actually do some work for a change!

Saturday My wife and i travelled to Blackpool ,you can read all about that HERE.

Sunday was all about dot watching and being glued to the elite Field at London and what a day! Mo surprised me running third and taking the British men’s record and Kipchoge stormed to another victory,can that guy have a bad race??

I had a fair few friends and club mates down in the big smoke and it certainly looked a hot one! Stand out performance for me was my teammate Neal who ran the race of his life coming in sub 2.40 and taking our clubs record!

My running this week will be all about easy runs as its only six days to the three peaks!


Last weeks Training.
