training update

Another round up of what my running has been like recently.

SUNDAY:  100m intervals, 6 miles in total.  This went OK and it was good to run quick for a change, even though it was in very short amounts.

MONDAY:  just a steady 7 miler around Menston.

TUESDAY:  long run ... Bramhope - Headingley - Kirkstall - canal to Baildon - Guiseley - Menston - back to Otley.  About 25 miles in about 3h 30.

WEDNESDAY:  another long run ... 24.2 miles fartlek in 3h 13.  Very tired now !!!

TOMORROW:  rest day ...

Sounds good Chris, during your 24 mile fartlek what were the distances for the slow-fast-slow-fast reps?

The plan was to have a steady 3 mile warm up then repeatedly run fast for 7 mins 10 seconds with a 4 min recovery. I guess I would be running fast for about 1.1 - 1.2 miles and slow for about 0.4 - 0.5 miles.

Next week it's 25 miles at 8 mins fast and 3 mins 50 slow.
