2018 has been an odd sort of running year so far. The race calendar has had a bit of a shake up and it’s led to me picking and choosing events a lot more carefully. This, coupled with fact that Easter – and so, Two Oceans – is quite early this year has led to a training schedule that can best be described as undulating.
You can’t beat a bit of undulation in fairness – give me some rolling terrain over a dead flat course any day. I’ll even go as far as adding some completely unnecessary undulations to flat routes whenever possible.
This past weekend was a great example as we ran the third iteration of what has become known as the DIY Peninsula Marathon.
