Please Donate here: – Every Day Hero THANK YOU

Week Commencing 26/06/17

Mondays and Thursday’s are resistance training days.

Tuesday

Steady run day, it was raining a bit when I set off and I am glad to say it did not last long.

I felt good on the run and felt as if I could have ran a bit harder but that is not what these steady sessions are about, I can save it for the speed runs later this week.

Total time 37.24 total distance 3.3 miles
Split times
1st 11.37
2nd 10.37
3rd 10.55

Wednesday

Hill runs 4 in total, a 3 minute uphill run with a jog back down to recover.

I could not avoid the rain today, I can’t really complain I started running in February and today is the first time I got soaked.

The runs went well, I was glad when I had completed the last one though I don’t think I could have managed another one.

Total time 24.51 distance 2.2 miles
Split times
1st 10.16
2nd 11.04

Friday

Speed training, a 20 minute run with short intervals at a faster pace.

I am always afraid of going off too fast and not being able to complete the run, by this I mean not having to walk or is it OK to walk, I don’t know if there is an experienced runner reading that can shed some light on this.

Total time 21.37 total distance 2.1 miles
Split times
1st 9.16
2nd 9.47

Sunday

I was unable to run in the parkrun yesterday so I did a 30 minute run today before attending the junior parkrun as a marshal.

I tried to increase the pace and I am please with the times I put in for each mile.

While running I felt as if something was not quite right, when I got home I found that I had put on my trainers and not my running shoes.

Total time 35.35 total distance 3.3 miles
Split times
1st 10.22
2nd 10.20
3rd 9.50
