Welcome to week 5 of 10 is the magic number. How are you all doing? It’s been a difficult time of year to focus on a running programme so huge well done if you are still with us!!
So this week the runs are:
You are so close now.... this week think about how to approach the longer runs. These are some of the things I’ve done that have helped:
Chunk the run into the landmarks and feel a great sense of achievement when you reach them.
Write your run down on paper and take it with you to tear off achievements. When I was training for my marathon I wrote down each milestone and tore it off ( 3,6,12,15,18,21 miles). These were my fuel stops also and I bit a hole into each when I’d done it.
Counting. I do this on hills..... so I count to 100 in sets of 25. 200 is half a mile for me.... it just takes the mind away for a bit.
I listen to music, but others suggest talking books are good. I keep meaning to try this out!!
Here is the vid:
Have a great week... nearly there now,
