A great progressive run in 1:00:36 with an average of 7:34 m/m.
The only way I was going to get a long run in today was to get up and out the door for 6.30am. Now that was just not going to happen.
So I had to give the LSR a skip and settle for a 10 mile run at MP. Now initially the legs were a tad heavy and maybe the route I chose had something to do with this as well as I hit the incline from the start.
So no LSR but I did run 18 miles hard across the 2 days and within a 24 hour period.
So overall I am pretty pleased with that. I am not stressing over following my training plan like a slave this time as work and family life are making this tricky. Not an easy time of the year to train for a marathon if I was being honest. But I am enjoying my running when I get out for it.
Nell - I mixed my interval sessions during spring training and it certainly makes for a more interesting week. This time round as I have been alternating the hill reps with intervals I am sticking to 8x800m or 10x800m depending on how I feel.
6 miles easy to moderate for me at 8:20m/m pace last night.
Home too late tonight and really tired from burning the candle at all ends so will get tempo run in tomorrow and LSR early Sunday.
