23-29 July 2018
Week 7 of my training block for the Clacton Half Marathon based on Jack Daniels’ Running Formula.
Easy Miles – Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
Slower than 7:25 per mile pace
Interval Club Run – Thursday
4:50-5:45 per mile pace
Rest Days – Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday
After three weeks of increasing mileage, I made a conscious effort to reduce my running load this week. I enjoyed three rest days, lead two group coaching sessions and complimented my training with recreational cycling of over 10.5 miles across three days, just as I did last week.
My weekly goal was to return to my running club and complete a tough interval workout, which I did on Thursday. My calf muscles were sore afterwards but consuming my homemade protein smoothies helped me recover.
I accumulated 19 miles with still no signs of my recent injury, which has set me up for a ‘heavier’ week of training to come.
