Okay… finished my long run today (Sunday)…. 17.6 km (11 miles). I tried the 3-1 method (3 minutes of running, 1 minute of walking. This is what Jeff Galloway (former Marathon olympian). It was different then my usual runs. I do feel better in terms of recovery but I am sore in my ankles which is a little different but it could be because it is my first LONG, LONG run in a while. I will try this method again next week.
As for the rest of my week 2 training… I did it! With the exception of Saturday’s run, I did all the other runs (almost getting hit twice!). On Saturday, I was at a baseball tourament all day (games at 9:00am, 10:30am and then lunch and then the FINALs at 3:30pm)…. I guess I could have ran between the 10:30am game and before the FINALs but I was tired… from the back-to-back games…. I figured this would count for my 5 mile run. Plus, there was a end of the season party afterwards and I did go but still managed to wake up and get my LONG run in!
Here’s what next week holds in store:Monday – rest Tuesday – 3 miles (4.8 km) Wednesday – 6 miles (9.6 km) Thursday – 3 miles (4.8 km) Friday – Rest Saturday – 6 miles (9.8 km) Sunday – 8 miles (12.8 km) – cutting back to build for next week’s run – which is 13 miles (20.6 km)
