Since Christmas I have stepped up the hm training for my April 22nd event to three runs a week whilst building distance. I have run Mondays, Thursdays and Saturday parkrun.
wk1 4.2, 7.3 and 3 miles
Wk 2. 4.2, 8.4 and 3.1 miles
Wk 3. 4.5, 9.3 and 4.1 miles
Wk 4. 4.3, 9.6 and 3.1 miles.
My question is that this week I have a 5 mile event run on Sunday. So I can run a normal 4-5mile on monday but should I do the long run Thursday (about 9-10 miles) or should I do a cut back week with a shorter 7 mile run? I will drop parkrun as I have the 5 mile event on Sunday. Thank you.
