Not as many miles as originally planned this week. The plan was 3 runs of 12, 14 and 6 miles (with the first 2 at marathon pace and the last as faster interval training). Got off to a good start with 12 miles on Monday at the right pace but had left it too late on Wednesday to do 14 miles so settled for 8 instead (but slower). And then 5 miles fast (ish) on Thursday evening – all wrapped up and with new running socks like DVT socks (not convinced about these yet – more testing needed).
Do need rethink long runs and how many to do per week and how much time between them. The plan was to start like this week – with a longish one at the beginning of the week and then the real long one mid-week and then move to one long one on Saturdays over the next month or so. The 2 mid-week ones are not really practical (and it’s not as much fun running when it’s dark) and don’t leave enough time between them and I need to concentrate on running at pace. So it’s back to the drawing board and update the plan this weekend.
