Weather controlled training

  • Monday mornings run was postponed due to treacherous conditions under foot.
  • Tuesday morning I managed a 6 mile run without falling over
  • Wednesday mornings run was postponed due to temperatures of minus 5 and hubby was concerned I would come back looking like this:-
  • Wednesday night run was 3 miles on the treadmill-oh the boredom especially as I had forgotten my Ipod, how people train for a marathon solely on one of these is beyond me.
  • Thursday mornings run was hill sessions. The training plan required 8 hills of 2 minutes up and down which should have bought it to a total of 4 miles, mine however came to 3 miles so assume from this that I was very slow but actually was pleased with my average pace.
Am hoping to manage last two sessions this week but am worried about snow forecast again for Saturday!


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!

    Keep going, you’re doing a fab job(and no-one ever really follows their plan, do they?)

    Couldn’t agreeing about treadmill running. 30mins without an iPod shows an impressive level of dedication.

    Great consistency and a nice mix (especially Monday and Wednesday!). I think treadmills are OK — infinitely preferable to icy pavements anyway.

    The only way I can get through a treadmill run is with my ipod – I’m impressed you managed half an hour with nothing! It’s coming round so quick now isn’t it…
