Follow the progress of Mustkeeptrying, our sub-5:00 hopeful
Well week two's schedule nearly done and i'm really pleased with how its been going. Choosing to have today as a rest day as still up in Leeds and family is all coming round to ma and pa's house. Just going to take it easy for the 7 miles tomorrow (going to jog near emmerdale country as its nearby) and probably take the full 90 mins doing a jog and then walk for a few mins.
Tue 4M (approx 50 mins) slow Wed Rest
Thu 1M jog, then 2 x 1.5M (or 15 mins) fast, with 800m (5:30-min) jog recoveries, then 1M jog
Sat Rest or 3M (approx 39 mins) easy
Sun 7M (approx 90 mins) run/walk
and then we will be in to week 3......
Tue 1M jog, then 3 x 1M (or 10 mins) fast, with 400m (3:15-min) jog recoveries, then 1M jog
Thu 4M (approx 50 mins) slow
Sat Rest or 3M (approx 39 mins) easy Sun 8M (approx 100 mins) run/walk
Hi Mustkeeptrying, just thought I'd check in to your thread and say hello!
I was one of the unlucky shortlisted peeps in the sub 3.15 category. It looks like you have got stuck into the schedule already and making some good progreaa in your training sessions in the absence of your mentor. Don't want to sound patronising, but well done for that as it shows the committment needed to see you through to your goal. Just remember to gradually build up the milage in your campaign and try and stick to the schedule as closely as you can. I did my first marathon last year at London and followed the prescribed RW plan. I loved the fact that for 16 weeks i knew what I was supposed to be doing everyday (and also my wife & 2 kids too). It made it more easy to fit the training in. Good luck and I feel that you have got that passion that will see you through to April 10th!
thanks steve-soo frightened of getting injured and really going to listen to my body. That bit of the leg feels good today . Calves a little tight so had another spray session and they feel good to. I'm heading out this afternoon for the session-
1M jog, then 3 x 1M (or 10 mins) fast, with 400m (3:15-min) jog recoveries, then 1M jog
and looking foward to it as this was my best session last week focusing on the timing of each part. I've put each part of the training on the calendar like knight rider suggested so that the whole family knows whats needed, when, and they can poke me with a stick when necesary.
<wife picks up branch and has evil look in her eye> lol
hey Matt, you might remember me - bleached hair, tattoos - from the selection day. Well done on getting into the Six, mate. Stick with it.
I've entered Prague marathon (few weeks after Paris) and am also turning things up a notch.
I'll be keeping an eye on yr training. Good luck.
Better safe than sorry - had you pushed it and caused damage it would have been far worse than missing a bit - although I do sympathise (as only a runner can lol ) with that hindsight feeling of " I could've/should've pushed it!!!
I managed the 4 miles required today although I have blisters from the new trainers I'm trying to break in .........
Take care x
Are you sure it's the shoes? Sometimes socks can be to blame too
