Another exciting week in the The Virtual Runner’s world of marathon training! Three more successful runs this week and that includes today’s 12 mile long run.
Overall, a pretty good week:-
Easy run of 6.5km (4.04 miles) in 42:07 for an average pace of 10:26 min/mile.
Tempo run with 1.6km @ 10:57 min/mile – 6.4km @ 08:52 min/mile – 1.6km @ 10:43 min/mile
Long run of 19.46km (12 miles) in 2 hours 9 mins 16 secs for an average pace of 10:41 min/mile (06:38 min/km)
Pretty good week overall but still no cross training. Clearly I’m a cross training procrastinator. Perhaps next week then…
Next week’s running is a rest/easy week with three 6 mile runs, which will be a nice break! However, the week after that my long run is going to be 16 miles! Yikes.
Details of the training plan I’m following are here:-
I’m off to vegitate…
