Running, Training

Week 6 Training

Another good steady week this week – I feel like it’s giving me chance to build my confidence for the longer runs that will start soon.

Week 6:

  • Monday: jog 20 – 10 minutes to the gym, 1 hour weights (legs), 10 minutes home
  • Tuesday: sprint for 75 seconds, jog for 3 minutes – for a distance of 2 miles
  • Wednesday: swapped a 45 minute jog for a 40 minute interval spin session
  • Thursday: 35 minutes run
  • Friday: jog 20 – 10 minutes to the gym, 1 hour weights (chest), 10 minutes home
  • Saturday: rest
  • Sunday: Castle Howard 10k race

Apart from the spin class, my main alteration to the Virgin London Marathon training plan was to make Saturday a rest day.  The VLM plan had a 15 minute jog/10 minute walk session on Saturday with Monday as a rest day after the 10k race on Sunday.

I was feeling pretty tired though and ready for a rest so I took Saturday as a rest day as normal and will train on the Monday instead.

Castle Howard 10k race review post coming soon…
