This week went well.
Monday- 10 mile run- went well with some good tempo miles in the middle.
Tuesday- Aerobics- again went well- not too tired from the longer runs.
Wednesday- 3 mile with intervals. Yeah I have not done intervals for ages. Whoops. But I got on and did it this week.
Thursday- Body pump- new release. Hard work! But in a good way!
Friday- Rest day (not even a walk as I went out straight from work)
Saturday-12 mile run- good overall time but erratic pace.
Sunday- Rest day- not too stiff now as I did some foam rolling earlier on.
Total miles- 25, so a bit of an easier week.
Lessons learned- I can go faster than I think during longer runs. I need to eat a good snack before aerobics and then I will have enough energy. I need to focus on even pacing during my longer runs. Not sure if I learnt anything else? Actually it was a busy week, work wise, and I still managed to fit the running in.

Strong week again!
I think I’ll need to sleep for a month after the new Body Pump by the sounds of it….
Sounds like a great week!
Is your pacing really that uneven? Are you taking hills etc into account?
How many weeks do you have till M day now?
I think that last point is as important as any – the fact that you still fitted it all in despite a busy week at work. Its self discipline like that that’s vital but we often have to train ourselves to do that as much as train our bodies.
Jessica- you will be fine with the new body pump! A change is good to mix things up anyway!
Rose- It might be hills, but it is the same route I normally run and so I think I was worse on Saturday- normally it is much more even.
9 weeks to go 🙂
Rob- thanks – it still amazes me when people fit in so much more around work.
Looks like a great week of running! Thanks for those sesame bars, just got them this morning when I returned to work 🙂
Glad they arrived 🙂 Hope you like them
I find pacing myself so difficult too it’s slowly getting there with practice but it’s tough! I try to go on feel more than on numbers and that seems to be working for me at thwe moment but who knows!
I think that is the best way to keep the perceived effort the same, but it is still hard.
