Simple Training Forumla, would it work?

Posted: Today at 19:33

Back to it today with my 8km easy, well as i have not run since Sunday and my legs were fresh i did one of those "quicker than i should have" runs.  But i did feel good, 15 to 20second per KM too fast though.

20km on Sunday.

Great to see you last night.

The offer remains if you do the Manchester Marathon and if you are around at weekends for the LSR let me know sometime.

I picked up that I really need to be doing these 4 runs a week again and need to get the weekly mileage and/or daily mileage up quicker than we are at the moment. With 4 runs that i expect will happen. I am thinking of the recovery run for the Monday which you have suggested, I have a 5km route i can do. Then maybe some swimming on the Thursday during my lunchtime.

So Friday will be the 8km easy run and Sunday my 20km LSR.

Thanks again and really was nice meeting you.

I was actually suffering from a sore throat last night and a bit of a cold, so didn't run, instead i wrapped up and kept warm. Ok today though.

Will be running again Friday and then the usual LSR on Sunday.

Well that was interesting got caught at about an hour in with toilet needs, tried to reach the end of. 20km but couldn't so had to run home. I was strong and would have completed the 20km, but stopped for too long and could get the body going again. At 14.3km I was in total control as you would expect with no aches or pains, apart from needing to stop. First run ever I think where the body took over lpl.

Well that felt like a disaster of a run.

I struggled, i was heavy, flat footed and had to haul myself round. The bottoms of my feet (instep) were aching and my ankles and feet felt like everytime i was planting them it was aching and i would twist an ankle lol.

However i pushed on and made sure i completed the run, a little slower than the 5.45-5.55 second time frame but not much over so happy with the time overall i guess.

Hard work a deserved shower and another 8km on Friday

Ok will do, and I assume 18km on the Sunday runs?

Got a mate at work who has decided to take up C25K, i think he got bored of listening to my running stories and wanted to make some of his own lol.
