6 – 12 August 2018
Week 9 of my training block for the Clacton Half Marathon.
Easy Miles – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
Slower than 7:10 per mile pace
Rest Days – Thursday, Saturday and Sunday
With one eye on my upcoming race I reduced my pace and mileage this week. I enjoyed three rest days (including a visit to the location of my race), lead another four coaching sessions (helping one runner achieve a new 5km personal best) and complimented my training with recreational cycling of over 11 miles.
I accumulated almost 17.8 miles (over 2 hours) in four days. Although not a lot compared to previous weeks I wanted to ensure I am fully fit for my race next Sunday.
