With the duathlon 2015 early season ‘over’ (or almost over with yesterday’ Euro champs) then it’s a LONG wait until the Worlds in Adelaide in October or the English champs or the London Duathlon in Richmond Park.

So those of you who can’t swim might be somewhat at a loss over what to do for the next few months 🙂

Well following on from Paula’s 150 minute goodbye yesterday I was reading through one of her 5k training plans from her book fro ma few years back. EVERY week she touted the benefits of getting off the roads and onto more mixed terrain.

So grab a pair of off-road shoes and find a forest or hill or mountain or something plain different and get running again. Variety is the spice of life, apparently. The La Sportiva Mutant (above) is a good place to start if you don’t have the right shoes.

I might have a look at some of their other trail/hill running shoes next month in a bit more detail.
