Training for Week 8

Halfway point in the plan and after last week’s break really need to get some miles on the clock this week. Looks as if the weather is picking up along with the lighter evenings so bodes well…

Monday – stretching

Tuesday -3x1600m

Wednesday – short run

Thursday 7 mile tempo

Friday – stretching

Saturday – cross training (bike)

Sunday – 16 miles long run

The 16 mile run should have been done last week but as I was ill only did a gentle 10. I’m in two minds whether to run the 15km at the Wellingborough MT and then run a 7 miler when I get home or whether to just go for it an do it in one hit. The danger of splitting is that I’ll end up racing the 15km and will get home and not want to do anything else – especially as the MT is quite a tough hilly route. Although the last entry is today I think I’ll decide at the weekend and enter on the day if I feel like it.
