A little behind this week getting this one up, got a little distracted getting my runs and workouts in.

Again this plan comes for check them out for training plans, and nutrition, it’s free.


Here’s how the weeks went for me.


Week 5

Sunday – Rest

Monday – 31-minute run. Took the dog on this one so hit the wall a little early trying to run her pace.

Tuesday – Progression 30-40-minute run. Learnt my lesson with the dog she had to go my speed today.

Wednesday – 30-minute tempo run

Thursday – Rest

Friday – 30-45-minute run

Saturday – Easy 60-minute easy run


Week 6

Sunday – Rest

Monday – 30-minute run,

Tuesday – Easy run 30-40-minute.

Wednesday – Tempo run for 30-minutes, did this one with a weight vest on. It hurt in a whole new way.

Thursday – Rest

Now for the last two weeks including the taper week for before my race.
