Training: W/C 11th August 2014

Its been over a week since my last post! Sorry folks. We were acquired by another company and my kind has been on other things incluyding having to go to a work event this weekend which messed up my running! More details below 🙂

Last Week

Monday: 5m Easy – Probably without Josh, think we’ll do the Lyde Road loop with plenty of elevation! No Josh, so just me and Simon, but did a tough little figure of 8 loop around Hendford Hill and Bunford. [Garmin Activity]

Tuesday: Club Run – Will do the 6-7 mile option as usual. Nope, had to attend a work function in the evening so switched to 7 easy miles in the early morning instead. [Garmin Activity]

Wednesday: 2 x 15mins Tempo Run – Same amount of minutes/volume as last week, but will test the endurance a little more by not having the extra break and doing them back to back. Managed this quite well. The pace was in the lower end of the zone, but still in it. [Garmin Activity]

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 5 x 1mi Intervals – Not looking forward to this! This is the session I really struggled with last time out, and now have added an extra rep. Have increased the rest by 1 minute between reps and hopefully the weather will be a touch kinder too. Also, I think I’ll run the intervals on the Ninesprings cycle path too, as I quite liked doing it there when I did the 1kms. I ended up changing plan and ran a loop, letting my Garmin tell me when to stop and rest. I had to double check the results against google maps afterwards – the intervals were a blistering pace averageing about 6.45m/m – which is too fast really. But it felt so good! [Garmin Activity]

Saturday: 5m Easy – Will do this after parkrun in all likelihood before I travel to Birmingham for work. I actually ran parkrun, and did an extra loop to top it up to 5miles. [Garmin Activity]

Sunday: 14m LSR – Have plotted a route around our Birmingham residence, so should be nice to see some different scenery. Well this got totally shelved. Just had absolutely no time to do it. Disappointed but I can’t let that get me down!

Next Week

Monday: 5m Easy – Still away for work so this will be 5 miles as and when I can get them.

Tuesday: 7m Easy – Supposed to be a club run, but away with work so who knows where this will take me!

Wednesday: 20/15mins Tempo – Extending my Threshold runs again, hopefully I’ll get through this relatively unscathed!

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 10 x 2mins Hill Repeats – Usual hill, just extra reps of it. My least favourite session, but probably the most beneficial!

Saturday: 5m Easy – Will probably run to parkrun

Sunday: 14m LSR – Rescheduled from last week. Didn’t think it wise to jump straight up to 15.
