On the plan:
Tuesday: 5M of 1M jog then 12 x 200 at 5k pace (8:00/8:15min/mil) with 200m jog recoveries then 1M jog
Wednesday: 4M steady 9:30min/mil approx 38 minutes
Thursday: 1M warm up then 3M at half marathon pace in 25 minutes followed by 1M cool down
Sunday: 10M easy
What I actually did:
Tuesday: 5M of 1M jog then 12 x 200 at 5k pace (7:19-8:36min/mil) with 200m walk/jog recoveries then 1M jog
Wednesday: 4.15M at 9:24 min/mil average
Thursday: 1M at 9:10min/mil, 3M at 8:37min/mil then 1M at jog/walk of 10:15min/mil
Friday: 45 lengths of the 25m pool
Saturday-Sunday: Mystery weekend away to Brussels with Mr Charming for my birthday so no running but plenty of beer and food and walking around!
Feeling much more positive about Giant’s Head marathon now – it looks like a brilliant race to do too, lots of fun and organised for runners, by runners.
Who else is doing it?
