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?


An average runner that has found a passion for running and raising money/awareness for MNDA. I have completed London, New York, and Chicago marathons. I am tempted to go for the Six-Star finishers medal, running all the World Marathon Majors, but that's a dream in progress.
