Week 4 Training

So a month has gone already!  The marathon is going to be here before I know it.

This was a good training week, pretty consistent and the weather is improving so my thermals might finally be ready to go to the bottom of the pile.  Here’s what I did this week.

Week 4:

  • Monday: 30 minutes run with 3x 60 second bursts of maximum effort
  • Tuesday: jog 20 – 1o minutes to the gym, 1 hour weights (lower body), 10 minutes home
  • Wednesday: jog 45
  • Thursday: replaced the scheduled jog 10 run 35 with a spin class
  • Friday: jog 20 – 10 minutes to the gym, 1 hour weights (upper body), 10 minutes home
  • Saturday: rest yippee!
  • Sunday: run 60

I was very ready for my rest day this week.  Wednesday I took a trip to my lovely friend Vicki’s in Rothwell and ran with her.  She runs slightly faster than me and lives in an area with hills so I’ll definitely be doing that more often (and she made me a lovely dinner afterwards).

On Sunday the husband ran with me – again he’s slightly faster, and it helps knowing he won’t stop even if I’m tempted to.
