Week Two MK marathon training – DONE

Usually the day before and after my long run are rest days but not this week. The last run of week two was completed tonight after hubby got home from a day out.

The plan called for:-(I had been avoiding this all week)

5M of 1M jog, then 2 x 1.5M (or 14 mins) fast, with 400m (3-min) jog recoveries, then 1M jog

Still cannot understand why they go from miles to metres which I or my Garmin cannot.

I adapted the run slightly and it went like this:-

  • 1 mile 10:46 pace
  • 1.5 mile 8:51 pace – 13:18 mins 
  • .5 mile 11:10 pace (uphill and panting)
  • 1.5 mile  9:43 pace (still uphill) – 14:34 mins
  • .5 mile 12:00 (tired now)

So if I add the two 1.5 miles it comes to  27 :52 this is under the required 28 minutes! Go me.

Week three starts tomorrow bring it on!!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
