After 12 days of no running due to the flu training resumed last week and all my goal runs were completed. The main two being my 5km parkrun on Saturday and a long run on Sunday.
Parkrun on Saturday was run in 19:23 about 2 min outside my best, however I was more than happy to get through the run. Sunday I managed 1:30 along th breach at 4:45 min/km which was nice for the confidence.
This week normally programming resumes with a simple routine.
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Hill repeats
Wednesday – Strength
Thursday – Rest
Friday – Long run (2 hour 30 min)
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – Intervals (8 x 4 min 90 sec recovery)
Hoping to fast track training to be back on track towards the marathon. Will need to ramp up my long runs quickly over the next 3-4 weeks.
If I get through this week I’ll be confident I can get back to peak fitness by the marathon start day. Looking forward to testing myself anyway.
