How is it all going. I've had another good weeks training and finished it off today with a 16m LSR. Joined a gym and am taking your recommendations about light weights and stretches. Also did some light swimming only as it has a sauna and jacuzzi ????
Hi Dom- keep those marathon tips coming, its good to know what other runners do in there training. The training session I'm doing different this year is hill training.
1 mile warm up then x6 hill of approx 300 meters at hard pace with jog back each time and 1 mile cool down. Really works the heart, lungs, legs and arms. I'm going to increase it by 1 up to x10 and then back down.
Its been a very tough training week this week as I had to do my LSR on Thursday (working this weekend) along with all the other sessions. Going to gym tomorrow early for a gentle swim/sauna.
enjoy your long runs this weekend, and try to dodge those showers.
Well after my good HM on Sunday, I took part in the master league last night for Striders!!! I did the 5k (22min dead) and came 3rd in my age group. I think today is rest day or a very easy 4/6m.
Good info on pacers, that certainly helps as you can concentrate on your running and not have to worry about pace.
