I’ve got some confessions 🙈
Last week was a rubbish week & although I tackled a few runs, I totally fluffed the first week of my half marathon training 🤷♀️🙄
It started the day I was going for my first run... all ready with my plan of attack, two 5ks per week... one fartlek, one tempo, & a long run at the weekend... I don’t know what came over me, but before I got out the door I suddenly heard a little voice telling me, this will never work... you’ll never stick to it... you need more structure, blah blah blah...
So... bring on the Nike training plan 🙌 I put all my info in & it set me up a great plan, now I felt ready! 🙌 However some weeks, like the first week had 5 runs😱 some weeks had 3... I thought I’d just go for it!
I think I can officially say 5 runs per week is probably far too many for me at the moment!🙈🙄😅
I did enjoy the runs I completed... except the benchmark run... that was awful 🤫 But I think overall it was far too challenging for me 🐌🙈
So here I am today with shiny new... plan number three 🤩 ...It does look much better! 3-4 runs per week & 14weeks till the HM...
I’ve had a super 4k run today & feel like I can do this now! All that is left for this weeks runs is 10k over the weekend & another dreaded benchmark... which I’m thinking of doing on Thursday 😬
Happy running you lovely lot 💛
Get out there & be awesome 👏
