Last week I laid some lofty plans… to run 5 days out of 7, to do easy runs, long runs and intervals … with 2 rest days. To build my training to work towards a 10k run in the 4th June – the Women’s 10k.
I had a feeling I wouldn’t do the intervals, or the threshold run – and I was right. Running fast isn’t for me, but I will do it – I hope.
Last week I did however end up meeting my 100 mile a month target, by doing the following runs / rest days:
I had some good rest days, particularly on Saturday and Monday this week when I was off work. And I also did some other activity on Sunday – painting the Garagym which has left me a little bit tender – using muscles I’m not used to using.
It’ll take at least a week to dry, so I get a rest from it for a bit.
This week I’m planning the following, a bit of a change from above, just mixing the days up a bit:
Tue: 6M easy (done)
Wed: 47 min intervals (10, (4×2:1),3,(4×2:1),5
Fri: 50 min intervals (10, 2M, 10, 2M, 10)
Sun: 50 min easy
I’m aiming to be up and out for 630am on Wednesday, intervals along the Clyde to Glasgow Green and back I hope. I got out of bed ok today, so hopefully the same will be said for Wednesday.
Another busy week this week at work and I’m meeting a few people, coaching and lunch, so I’ll be kept busy in other ways too.
