9 weeks to go: my Run & Strength plans

So here’s the plan for the next 9 weeks before the Belfast marathon on 5th May:

– 3-4 runs a week: easy, medium, long.
– 1-2 strength sessions a week.
– A swim if I fancy it.
– 1-3 rest days.

I haven’t doing strength work for a while, so I expect I’ll be sore after I start. I didn’t give blood today, so I’m going to do strength tomorrow before work.

Here’s the workout I’ll do (just tues this week, then two mornings a week after that):

I’ll aim to lift heavy, and intense, and increase the weight I lift each time. (The numbers to the right are the plates I’ll use to make the weight up).

And here are my long run plans (in miles):

They may change, but that’s a rough idea to get me up to running 26.2 miles in 9 weeks (and sunup lumens my running with strength training). Other runs will be between 4-10 miles, and will be social or easy runs. (Rest days after my long runs or when I need them.)

Sorted. 🙂
