Marathon training update, although important to point out that my original idea of following an actual ‘training schedule’ has gone out the window….
Monday – rest day – I ran 13 miles on Sunday, so it was deserved.
Tuesday – gym – hill reps on the treadmill – 45mins
Wednesday – rest day – I’m supposed to be running 5 days a week – I’m not
Thursday – gym – 7 miles at steady 9 min/mile pace
Friday – rest day – didn’t even get a takeaway!!
Saturday – Rutland Water Parkrun – easy jog
Sunday – Newton’s Fraction Half-Marathon at Grantham. Steady 9 min/mile pace – although felt knackered at the end – must have been the bloody massive hills you have to run up.
Only 49 days until the actual marathon. And of course you can sponsor me, have a look at previous blog post to find the link.
