Tuesday was s total rest day, then I did my first run of the week as a coaching session with a client on Wednesday night.
Wk12 wc 14/3 – 22M HR 160 / 180 cadence
Wed: 7.5M coaching
Thu: 6.5M easy
Sat: 22M effort / 180 cadence / 159 HR
My long run on Saturday was my 22 miler and I was tired on Sunday after it, but still managed an active rest day with around 13,000 steps in the sun. (And a wee sit and a read in the garden). Luckily I wasn’t sore, even after the effort I put in on Saturday on the long run, just tired.
This next week we’re going to be on leave for a bit of it. And I’m going to do a few runs to keep running and hopefully get an interval session in too.
Wk13 wc 21/3 – 13.1M fast finish (on holiday)
Mon: 5M Easy run
Tue: Rest (or gym)
Thu: 6M Easy run
Fri: 4M Easy run (or rest)
Sun: 12-13M tempo
Long run on Sunday fingers crossed, but it’ll be a short long run – just 12-13 miles. And I’ll see if I can make it back to the gym / for a deadlift strength session early in the week.
5 weeks to go until the London marathon.
Here’s my remaining long run plans (bearing in mind I’m not tapering as much as I had a late start to my training due to flu etc):
Last thing – on our walk today in Bella park we saw this nice elephant. 🙂
I’m off to bed before the new week starts. Have a good week next week.
