16-22 July 2018
Week 6 of my training block for the Clacton Half Marathon based on Jack Daniels’ Running Formula.
Easy Miles – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
Slower than 7:15 per mile pace
Tempo Run – Saturday
Faster than 7:15 per mile pace
Rest Days – Thursday and Sunday
I stepped up the quantity of my running this week. Almost all my workouts were easy-paced, long runs. This took more time and energy, and therefore I didn’t feel it appropriate to run any miles at my intended half marathon race pace.
My weekly goal was to run continuously for at least an hour, which I did on Friday. I also cycled over 10.5 miles across three days. Although simply recreational, the exercise supplements my training.
I also enjoyed coaching my first two-day running assessment on one of my runners.
I accumulated over 29 miles with no signs of my recent injury, which built my confidence that my body is adapting well for ‘longer distances’.
