Last weeks training

Obviously this post is supposed to be a ‘Sunday Summary’ but I’m a day late. After having a complete rest on holiday, I eased back in to training last week. We arrived back in the early hours of Saturday morning, and by the evening, my husband was pushing me out of the door. I was a little grouchy and really needed to run!


Saturday – Miles 1.58, Time 14:13, Av. Pace 9mm

Monday – I headed out with my sister. I introduced her to some speed work, as she now needs to mix it up a little or plodding the same old route will be boring for her. Miles 2.56, Time 34.55, Av. Pace 13:39mm

Tuesday – Rest

Wednesday – Early morning run with my sister (Can you believe it was dark when I got up Boooo!!!) Miles 2.26, Time 38:09, Av. Pace 16.55mm (I forgot to stop the watch for our walking cool down!) After I finished this run, I really needed to stretch my legs, so I added a little to my route home and pushed the tempo for 1 mile. Time 9.45mm

Thursday – I headed out with a  friend and some of the ladies from the club. Miles 5.10, Time 55:47, Av. Pace 10:57mm


It’s always so much easier and more fun to run with people.

Friday – Rest

Saturday – My sister completed her 3rd session for the week. Miles 1.83, Time 24:23, Av. Pace 13:18mm

Overall, a good week back. I have been thinking lots about my weekly plan. As soon as club sessions start again, I think I will have my tempo runs on a Monday and Thursday. I have my recovery runs with my sister, I now need to add a consistent long run. I also want to pencil in strength work and yoga. I want to use the Nike Training Club app for strength and Yoga studio app for yoga. I just need to work out how to put it all together.

How does everyone fit it all in? What cross training do you do to compliment your running?
