Seems like I started with this marathon training plan just a couple of weeks ago.
There something awfully liberating about recovery runs. I mean. You get to go both short and slow. Usually I don’t find short runs all that fun because you barely notice you’re running… when it’s already time to stop.
But those easy recovery runs are the exception I guess. I don’t feel the need to start off strong (as with workday short runs) so I get more enjoyment out of just having a short leisurely run somewhere in the middle of my day.
Because with all my other runs, finding half an hour for running on a Sunday? That really takes no planning. Plus, since it’s so short and without speed goals, I don’t feel the need to plan the days nutrition around it.
It fit right in between cleaning the apartment and going shopping for next week. 😛
So here’s Week Eleven in numbers:
Tuesday – 10km
Thursday – 5km
Saturday – 21km
Sunday – 5km
That’s a total of 41km. Weekly goals completed. All I really have to report is a bit of uncomfortable tightness in my hamstrings after yesterday’s long run.
But hopefully that’ll go away with the rest day tomorrow. 🙂
That first half marathon 27 (already?!) days away isn’t feeling particularly scary at the moment.
Another thing I love about weekends is making time to cook warm meals three times a day. 🙂 I was bad yesterday and didn’t snap any pics of what I made, but here is something to leave you hungry today. 😉
Yum. And so filling. Sometimes I forget how much I love a simple spinach omelette in my cuisine quests. 😉
In the background you can see my current kitchen project – I’m trying to grow my own spinach and basil. Mostly because I consume a lot of both and I’ve read how soaked in pesticides the store bought variants are.
Just put the seeds in ground today, so wish me luck! (I’m gonna need it as I’m one of those un-green thumb people. :P)
