15th May – 15 weeks to go
The past week didn't go as planned so only got out 3 times with no real long run. Ended up with a 5k, a 10k and the ‘Darkness into Light’ event. Tough one but great idea and well supported. However, I feel we are far enough out to have an odd week when things don’t go to plan but then again life’s like that and it’s how you deal with it will determine how you do. Thankfully I decided to let it go as they say in Frozen!
What I have also added to the shorter runs are press-ups and squats, usually 20 of each after a post run stretch. Its helps with breathing and strengthening the upper body for longer runs. So hopefully back on plan for the next week
Enjoy your running this week!
If you did the NW10K hopefully all went well for you. I was delighted with the 46.42 time and it’s good now and again to run a longish race instead of a longer no pressure run. I took the race as my long run this week having only got out twice during the week with a 5k and an 8k. It was good to rest.
Training going steady with yoga once a week helping with core work and stretching after the long run. The NW10 is usually the time to knuckle down to training. While it is planned out for the next few months, I need to begin to work on the mental side of things so as to prepare well for as we all know the summer months can interrupt training a lot.
However enjoy your training this week and chat next week again
