Three weeks to go

It’s 3 weeks til I go and I feel like I need a bit of a plan to keep me on track with my training and food.

My BP is more or less back to normal for me when I’m training, so if I keep up the training, hopefully that side of things will be fine.

Keeping it simple, I’ll aim to:

– strength train 3 times a week
– run 3 times a week
– build to another half marathon

– eat well for health and strength, prepped food for each day
– drink plenty, incl electrolytes
– make better choices (healthy over chocolate or pizza!)

Here’s the training plan:

Wk16 – 20 Apr
Mon: Deadlift Strength 3×12
Tue: 5M easy run
Wed: Squat 4×6
Thu: 8M run, fast finish
Fri: Deadlift 4×6
Sat: 12M run
Sun: Rest

Wk17 – 27 AprMon: Squat 2×20
Tue: 5M easy run
Wed: Deadlift 2×20
Thu: 10M run, fast finish
Fri: Squat 3×12
Sat: 13.1M run
Sun: Rest

Wk18 – 4 MayMon: Rest / Hill walk
Tue: 5M easy run
Wed: Deadlift 3×12
Thu: 8M run, fast finish
Fri: Rest
Sat: Squat 3×10
Sun: Rest

Food will be:
Breakfast – Berries, yoghurt and total breakfast
Lunch – Quiche and salad on non run days, baked potato and tuna on run days
Snacks – banana shake, homemade protein bars, pears, nuts.

Ps: my big brother Neil is running Boston marathon tomorrow, the start time is 3pm here I think. I’m sure he’ll do amazing, here he is with his hero Bart Yasso (who he’s met before).
