This week’s runs felt pretty good. My lower back was a little sore in the middle of the week but seems to be easing off now.
A gentle 20 minute run after a rest day on Tuesday.
Another gentle 20 minute run. Nice.
Friday seems to be the day the training programme tries to kill me. This Friday was a Fartlek Interval Run. That means short bursts of running at different paces. It’s supposed to help increase speed and endurance and open up your stride.
I did ok but the short intervals mean that the miCoach doesn’t really have enough time to tell your how your pace is. I fell below the green zone a lot but it didn’t ever tell me that I had.
Sunday was a nice recovery run.
Monday is ‘long run’ day. Just now that means 30 minutes but that will increase by 5 minutes each week. That should be about 1km extra. I went out early this morning and really enjoyed the run but feel tired now. Need to get to bed earlier if I’m going to run before breakfast.
