Well it's a sort of "plan" 😂
It needs to be loose and flexible but most weeks will be structured as follows:
Monday: Long easy pace continuous solo run
Tuesday: Cross Training
Wednesday: 10k club run easy pace with some stops
Thursday: Cross Training
Friday: 7-8k club run easy pace with some stops
Monday's run will be duration based rather than distance based. Yesterday I ran for 90 mins and be looking to increase the time every few weeks.
The Wednesday runs are not always 10k (sometimes more, sometimes less) and will probably be run a little quicker as it's a very fast group with me bringing up the rear😂We do stop on these runs but I will keep my watch running through any walks/stops so I can curb my pace obsession 😂
Friday is a slower group so I do a lot of running back but again there will be stops.
parkrun will generally be my tempo run but this needs to be flexible. If the weather is bad I hang back with my son to keep him going (he tells me I don't need to but I like to ❤️). Every third week of the month I like to volunteer as a pacer so would likely be running slower than easy pace and I also will be volunteering some weeks so won't be running at all!
After Christmas there is talk of a 15k option on a Wednesday for those training for the HM and I could also run to and from the club runs adding 3k to a Wednesday and 7k to a Friday. Obviously I would not do all of this in one week but it does give me flexibility with how I get the miles in my legs. I intend to keep an eye on my mileage (is kilometerage a thing?!? 🤣) and stay within the 10% rule.
For cross training I will be doing either Kettlebells or the NHS instructorlive Bodyblast workouts. These are 10 min workouts which can be mixed and matched together with a warm up and cool down.
Sounds like a plan?!?
Good luck to everyone attempting this. Looking forward to following your progress 😁
