Training Log for Week 9 of 2019

First of all, let me start by apologising for the service interruption. My wife and I bought a new house. I am over the moon about it, but between getting everything sorted, and selling our current home, it has been a frantic few weeks. As a result, keeping Run161 updated has fallen to the back of the list of priorities. That includes keeping up with the news and publishing other running related content pieces. And, of course, updating you on the progress of my training.

To keep my training log complete, I am still publishing my entries for the weeks I missed. That way, anyone can go back and see what I did at any given period. However, I will not be adding commentary for week 9 and week 10. Instead, if you want to read some prose about how my recovery from injury went after week 8 and up until week 11, you can skip straight to the week 11 training log entry.
