28 May – 3 June 2018
Week 2 of my training block for the Clacton Half Marathon based on Jack Daniels’ Running Formula.
Easy Miles – Monday, Tuesday
>16.5 miles at 7:35-7:40 per mile pace
‘Quality Workouts’ – Wednesday, Thursday
Cross-Training (Gym Workouts) – Friday, Saturday, Sunday
I accumulated over 22 miles in just over 2.5 hours of running. However, a recurring injury in my shins meant I had to re-examine my training plan.
To prevent me from stressing the affected areas further I decided to join a local gym. I now have an opportunity to build strength with weights and machines, whilst I maintain my cardiovascular fitness with lower impact equipment, such as stationary bikes and cross-trainers.
