Training: End of week two, slightly more miles and another missed run...
M - Netball match / Netball match
In the wind and rain - we won 21-16 :)
T - 5mi @ 12:15 / 4mi @ 12:12
After finishing work late, I didn't have time to do the full 5 miles, so focused on matching the required pace. Although my splits weren't very even; 13:23, 11:32, 13:03, 10:52!
W - 3mi fartlek / Rest
My legs were so achey after the first netball match since before Christmas followed by the run the next day that I was sore just walking, so didn't think a speed session was a very clever idea!
T - Rest / Rest
F - Rest / Rest
S - 10mi @ 12:15 / 10mi @12:30
A bit slower than planned, but felt okay with the mileage, and not too sore the next day!
S - Rest / Rest
Total Distance: 14 miles
Weight: 0.5lbs down :)
Summary: Still only two runs of the planned three, but I knew this would happen as training clashes with the busiest thre months at work, so I'll continue to prioritise the long run over speed work - my aim is to finish, not to be fast over the first 10km then collapse!
Thought: Do the best you can, where you are, with what you have now.
