Weeks 5, 6 and 7 (now week 5) – Snowdonia training #runchat @runningblogs

Week 5 and 6 Review:

Two weeks holiday and a reduced running schedule. Still managed to get out for a few runs including an 8 miler in Cornwall. Not really much to say. Had a few beers, but glad I managed to keep running. Ended week 6 with a 13 mile run.

Week 7 (week 5) Training:

Week 7 becomes week 5. Doesn’t matter why, but it follows my training programme better. Here is the schedule:

WEEK 5 (Approx 22M)

  • Monday – rest
  • Tuesday – 4M : 1M easy then 6 x 400m (half of a track) at around mile pace (approx 1.55 per rep) with 2 min jog recoveries, then 1m jog).
  • Wednesday – 3M steady
  • Thursday – 5M including 6 x 30 second hill reps with walk recoveries
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – 3M easy
  • Sunday – 10k plus warm up and cool down.

Still not booked accommodation but have found a camp site.

Short blog post this evening but I will write more when I get time.
