Official Marathon Training started today!! I received my long run time table for the next 21 weeks until race day from coach, which I'll be doing on Saturday mornings (mainly - & the odd Sunday if required). I'll update weekly for those of you who are interested!!
Coach will give me 2 other runs to do during each week dependent on how I hold up from my long run, but will generally be a shorter run 5 - 10kms which I'll be doing on Monday mornings & a speed session which I'll be doing Wednesday nights at gym on the treadmill.
Last week's training looked like this:
Monday: PT pm (weighted squats)
Tuesday Morning: last weeks 10km slow time trial
Thursday: this weeks Short Run 7km at normal pace am + PT pm (various)
Friday: this weeks Speed Session - 5km on treadmill each km progressively 10 seconds faster
Saturday: this weeks Long Run - 10km slow & steady.
