Back again for another blog post!
This past week didn't really go too well, after last weekends long run and not feeling to good i decide to have a recovery week and take a few days off.
If i find that i am starting to feel run down i now go straight into having some days off. In the past i would try and run through illness's and i have always found that it never works and just prolongs the problem. After having this last week as an easy week i will be taking this as my weeks break for the year until i have another easy week over Xmas.
W. 8miles jog
T. 10miles easy (6-6.30pace)
F. 20mins w.up jog- 12x90secs hard, 90secs easy- 20mins w.down jog
S. 7miles at 6.10pace
S. 12miles easy with last 2miles at sub 6min pace
At the moment i am still deciding on what races to run over the next few weeks, do i pull the plug on the track season and get some good solid training weeks behind me or do i try and squeeze some more track races in to see if i can run 14mins for 5000m? I will decide this week!
