ASICS 26.2 – Week 3 Training (plus a PB!)

11610377383_1019fe4404Hopefully I’ll manage to stay healthy this week. Week 2 was a mixture of a bad hamstring (which has improved) and a 24 hour bug on Saturday night which meant I cancelled my long Sunday run yesterday.

What I did manage on Saturday of Week 2 was an extra run at the Llyn Llech Owan parkrun. With a bit of pacing from a fellow Runner’s World forumite I managed a personal best of 28:02. Chuffed to bits. This was an extra run sanctioned by my coach and not part of the training programme.

Anyhow, my week 3 training routine looks like this:

WEEK THREE w/c 30 Dec (approx 23M)

  • Mon 3M easy???
  • Tue 5.5M of 1M jog, then 3 x 1 mile at 10km pace with 3 min walk/jog then 1M jog???
  • Wed Rest???(New Year’s Day)
  • Thu Circuit training
  • Fri 3.5M inc 6 x 30 sec hill reps at threshold effort with jog recoveries???
  • Sat Rest
  • Sun 11M on flat route, aiming for 2nd half faster than first half (very easy easy)

In other news, the Asics 26.2 Nutritionist has been in touch on the forums asking for my weekend diet notes. 🙁 More on that in a later blog post.
