I thought some of you may like to see what a week of running looks like for me at the moment. So this was last week, 3 weeks post Ultravasen.
am 50mins easy pace followed by 40mins S&C exercises (I do these at home as I didnt have a car)
pm 50 mins easy along the canal towpath with the hound for company
am 30 mins easy with the hound. Had to go and do grandma duties as my mum was on holiday (she lives about 45 mins away and needs a lot of care)
pm 15 min warm up + strides – 6x1km (90sec jog rec) – 15 mins jog down. Did these on the canal towpath. I was pleasantly surprised with how I felt. I had expected to feel a bit rusty but the body was pretty willing.
am 90 mins easy (7.30s) went out early doors as I had a meeting at 9.30am and I wanted time to shower and eat breakfast when I returned. Turned out to be a beautiful morning…..misty canal path and fields.
pm 45 mins jog with the Running Bath club. Took the hound, he wasn’t amused with city running…..
am 60 mins Tempo pace. I usually do these to HR so I am not pushing too hard or not working hard enough. Again I do these on river paths which are flat.
pm Exactly the same as am. In between I always take thursday afternoons off as I get physio with my good mate and work colleague Claire (AKA magic hands) and then we ALWAYS have coffee and cake.
am 60 mins easy
pm 30 mins + strides
Just 1hr easy with the hound off road.
Saturdays are a busy work day for me and end up spending a lot of time on my feet. So just one run and a dog walk in the evening. Early night!
2hrs 30 just ran to feel.Managed to pick up various people on route who were going my way, good to pass the time and made me run a little quicker than if I had been day dreaming on my own.
Followed this up with breakfast at the Canal Tea Shop opposite my house….in the sun!
TOTAL MILES 100
