I’m a few weeks behind on updating on my training calendar – sorry!
Work – blah blah blah. Insert excuse here.
If we both take a short trip down memory lane, week 1 launched with a 40-mile training plan, including the Vitality 10K. It ended with a 15 mile hot long run.
Week 2 was much the same: another 40 mile training week that looked like this:
Monday: PT session and Hot Pod Yoga
Tuesday: 1m w/u; 12×3 mins alternating reps at 10K and 5K pace ie, 6 at each pace (:60 rec) w/d
Wednesday: 4 miles easy
Thursday: 7 miles steady
Friday: 1m w/u; 3 miles HMP; 1.5 miles 10K; 3 miles HMP (continuous)
Sunday: 14 miles steady
How it went down:
Monday: Both sessions done – YAY
Tuesday: Session complete – YAY
Wednesday: Global Running Day. 5K session with LDN Brunch Club
Thursday: Didn’t run – BOO
Friday: Exhausted and sacked off run
Saturday: Friday’s session complete – YAY
Sunday: 6.5 miles solo + 6.5 w/ LDN Brunch Club – 13/14 complete
Total for that week: 30/40 miles.
As it was only week 2, I opted not to beat myself up over 1 missed run, especially given that I got up on Saturday morning to complete my Friday workout. That meant that my legs were tired on Sunday and those last 5 miles were TOUGH. Thankfully I had Laura and the rest of the LDN Brunch Club to keep me going.
Week 2 of Berlin: complete. On to next week.
