Marathon training : week one wrap up
Week one of marathon training went pretty well!
The Friday run was a no-go – as I suspected ‘Friday beer-day’ got in the way and instead of running I went to the pub and watched Andy Murray book himself a slot in the Wimbledon final. Instead, I did the Friday run on Saturday morning, taking in some beautiful parts of the Hampstead Heath during the (unusual) sunshine.
Also, I managed to include 2x400m sprints around the athletics track to finish off the session, before meeting my girlfriend at the Hampstead Heath farmers market. Energy replacement via cheese tasting and a hog-roast roll is not exactly the recovery plan of champions, but then, I never said I was a champion…
Highlights of the week’s running:
Overall the week went well, and I hit all my targets – albeit I had to move one of my runs.
But, hey, I don’t think a marathon plan that has zero flexibility is the right thing to do if you have a life outside of running!
That said, I am looking forward to cross training tomorrow instead of running!
All the best for your running everyone!
Get Going, Get Running!
