First week of the marathon training schedule has been very successful. Here is a summary:-
Called for 3 mile easy run at a 12:29 min/mile pace. I did 3.10 miles at a 10:14 min/mile pace.
Called for a 3 mile tempo run with a 1 mile warm-up and 1 mile cool-down. I managed 1 mile warm-up at 11:00 min/mile with 3 mile tempo run at 09:01 min/mile and the 1 mile cool-down at 10:33 min/mile.
Called for long run of 8 miles at 12:29 min/mile pace. I managed 8.01 miles at a 10:12 min/mile pace.
Overall, that’s a pretty good week, even though I didn’t get in the cross training I wanted/needed to on the days in between. Well, I guess that means more of an effort is needed on that front this week!
As for non-running related matters… I’ve made the decision to get rid of my windows based laptop. Since I’ve had my macbook pro I haven’t needed to use the other laptop for anything at all. I can see any reason to keep it so I’ve sold it to a work colleague.
I’ve had a nice weekend and spent a few hours yesterday at the Crowthorne Carnival (http://www.crowthornecarnival.co.uk/) with my son and mother-in-law (mummy was at work). It was a pretty good afternoon and the parade was… interesting. The floats were what you would expect for a small village parade, however one of them was a bit odd.
Pole dancing? In a parade? On a moving flatbed? With everyone dressed like they’re out of Grease!
I must admit, she was pretty agile though… lol.
So, there you have it. Pole dancing!
Tomorrow I’ll be attempting to get up early, go to the gym and do some cross-training and weights. Will it happen? Who knows! Place your bets…
