18 weeks to go to Donegal Marathon
The Ballyliffin Coastal Challenge was the long run this week. Delighted with it – 10 miles in 77 mins! Very warm but beautiful scenery. Took 500ml of diluted orange with salt along and it worked well along with the water stops en route. The week before the long run was good too – got out 3 times with a 5k, 11k & 7k and have now added press-ups and squats twice a week after the run. Running at various times during the week also help to see if I can last in the heat or the rain!
Next long run will be around 12 mile so hopefully the training will go well during the week – its planned out anyhow so it should!
Good luck with training this week and great to see so many on the roads getting ready for the North West 10k on 4th May
