Marathon training-Week 5 completed, week 6 done but not completed, week 7 started

The 11 miles on Saturday was the long run from week 5 that I could not do then, due to the snow.

Sunday I did 5 miles with the 3 miles in the middle at a fast pace. Was amazed to manage this with an average pace of 9:24.  (considering the previous days run). Legs felt surprisingly fine until after dinner when they just turned to jelly. I blame the yummy Turkey Pesto Lasagna and even yummier Mars Bar Apple Crumble that I made for dinner!

This morning I dropped madam with her Godmother (left them making Pasta) and ceased the opportunity to start week 7 training plan. Was a choice between a 6 mile or 3 mile run and am glad I decided on the smaller distance for two reasons 1)on the route I decided to take the paths were treacherous-still 2)the legs had had enough.

Tomorrow will be a rest day!

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!
