So, I managed two whole days of consecutive rest before my restless legs wanted to get back out there! (Which is an achievement in itself for me!).

Besides, the weather was nice and Tier 3 restrictions + unemployment gives me far too much time on my hands. I could sit indoors and overthink everything or I could lace up and get out! ๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

A nice short interval session to kick the week off:

0.5K of running ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ followed by walking until my breathing settles to normal - repeat 8x.

I plan on keeping this week a bit zen ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ but I never really know until the ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ are on and Iโ€™m out the door!

Right, time for a โ˜•๏ธ and to make a spreadsheet for my HM training attempt ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

You do what you like when you like! Enjoy your training. It's a great distance and the journey to it is fabulous as well. Enjoy your runs

๐Ÿคญ Iโ€™m a person that needs a bit of structure! Even if I do end up doing what I like on a occasion. A spreadsheet will hold me to account just by its mere existence ๐Ÿ˜‚

Abacus? I think I got one of those for Christmas one time

I'd have no idea how to use it now though

Wow, you are so fast!

Now - I love spreadsheets. I have a spreadsheet where I log my stats for every run, walk and yoga. The spreadsheet picks up my running total for the month and itโ€™s great to see that increasing!

Not sure Iโ€™d want one for training, but I can understand why it would be good. Iโ€™m working towards a HM, too - but a lot of mine is what I feel on the day of my long run. I run those longer distances really slowly so it makes more sense for you perhaps to have more structure, you are so speedy ๐Ÿ˜€Iโ€™ve done half a dozen 10Ks and a 10 miles, but still taking it steadily until the time is right, then wooosh! Iโ€™ll know when it feels right. Good luck!

Super speedy!

A spreadsheet - wow!

I spend all day looking at those sometimes - last thing I want to do in my free time.

But I get where you are coming from with structure and accountability

Wow, wasnโ€™t expecting so much negativity towards a spreadsheet ๐Ÿ˜‚ In all fairness, I hate them too! But I canโ€™t find a good HM app and I just canโ€™t get to grips with the NRC app - far too many options for my liking! Iโ€™m goal driven - I need to have a set distance otherwise Iโ€™ll just do all intervals ๐Ÿ™Š

I like a plan and goal to work to as well, sounds like you should let us all have a look when its finished ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿค”

Wow! Very speedy! Youโ€™re very organised! I just go out and run depending on how much time Iโ€™ve got and how much energy I have left ๐Ÿ˜‚. If that motivates you just go for it. Itโ€™s good to have a plan.

Just catching up with your news ๐Ÿ˜ congrats on smashing over the 10k finish line with a 12k super speedy run ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ you're well on your way to the HM and this interval session is the stuff my dreams are made of - btw am I right in thinking that your stats exclude the periods of walking? And if so - how? ๐Ÿ˜

PhoenixRise profile image
PhoenixRiseGraduate10 in reply to Littleoyellow

Thanks Littleoyellow ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Yes, stats exclude the periods of walking. I just press Stop on Strava when walking and then Resume when Iโ€™m off again ๐Ÿ’จ But I do leave the NRC app running continuously to include the whole activity inc. walking ๐Ÿ˜‰

My tiny brain canโ€™t get to grips with how fast you ran let alone spreadsheets

You would get on well with my daughter though, she has the most amazing financial spread sheet, she knows down to the last penny how much she spends on everything, food shop, car, dog, cat lol it amazes me, I get paid, spend a bit save a bit and thatโ€™s it
