Week 2 Round Up

The plan for this week looked like this:

Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 4
Wednesday - 7 (hills session)
Thursday - 6
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 6
Sunday - 13

This is what I actually did;

Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 5 ( treadmill hilly)
Wednesday - 7 (treadmill interval session)
Thursday - 3.88
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 4.67
Sunday - 13 (treadmill, inc 2x4 miles @ 7:04 mins/mile)

I didn't quite manage to hit the mileage for every run but for the first time in what seems like forever, I've managed to run 5 times in one week. I think a couple of smart decisions I made to cut the runs on Thursday and Saturday short have helped with this. Although training has been going ok over the past 3 or 4 weeks, this is the first time I've run over 30 miles in one week for a long time so I didn't want to push it too much. I was actually feeling pretty tired before I ran on Thursday and decided then that I was going to cut the run short. I think it's really important to listen to your body and if you feel like you need extra rest or need to cut a session short then you shouldn't be afraid to do that.

Highlights of the week were the treadmill interval session on Wednesday and the treadmill long run on Sunday. I really quite enjoyed these runs in a strange sort of way and I'm beginning to worry that I'm growing to love the treadmill too much! Will I be able to run my 15 mile run next Sunday outside???


  1. You are doing great Leslie and yes you will have no problem doing your 15 miles next weekend I am sure of it. Keep up the good work.

  2. Couldn't agree more with the listening to your body :)

    Can't BELIEVE how much you're enjoying the treadmill! So cool :) (literally haha)
