Wk11 – It all starts again

After my high on Sunday of beating my PB for the Balloch to Clydebank half marathon, I’ve found myself pretty tired and in need of sleep.  😀

After the run, I came home, showered, had lunch, then a nap, then taught swimming for 4 hours on a hot pool side.  I had enough to eat on Sunday, but I still felt very hungry on Monday through to Tuesday.

I was considering going swimming on Monday night, but I decided rest would be a better option. And I’ll start all over again today (Tuesday).  My legs are surprisingly fine after running that fast for a half marathon on Sunday.  Yipee!

So here is the plan for this week: (just under 4 weeks to go)

MON: Rest
TUE: PM: Double Spinfit
WED: AM: 4.3M easy run. PM: Run of some sort? 4-6 miles
THU: Swim or Run
FRI: 24.2M 
SAT: Rest
SUN: 8M incl 5M of Tempo

My main run this week is my 24.2 mile run up and back along Loch Lomond.  I’ve taken a half shift from work and aim to run 12.1 miles out and 12.1 miles back.

It’s my chance to really get a good pacing strategy sorted and get a feeling for what pace I can run (up to) 26.2 miles at.

Here’s the plan for the 24.2 miles and 26.2 miles:

 And depending on how I get on on Friday, I’ll amend the 26.2 plan.

    Works out great on paper, you never know what will come of the unknown though… As you get further into your marathon… I would be more opt to do this plan backwards and start out quicker and slow down near the end…
