I asked Ade while on the way to Val’s.
“How do you improve on running?”
“The usual thing. Interval, tempo, long distance. There is no short cut about it.”
I raised my concern about the run with her. That I was panting so badly at her pace.
“I was running rather hard that day. Normally I run at my 85% but it also means our ‘hardness’ is different la.”
“How long have you not been running already?”
I thought about it. Not that I have not been running but I have not been running consistently and with a plan or target.
My greatest worry now. Better do up a training plan for the run leg.
