Running: It's actually more expensive than therapy
This was my first week training with my Hanson's Marathon Method Plan and here's how it went.
Speed Intervals 7 Miles total
Warm up/cool down with 400M workouts for a total of 7 miles.
I calculated my pace for speed work and turns out I was going too fast before. This speed work was not as devastating to my body but made up for it with mileage.
6 mile Easy Run
No surprise here that my easy run pace was also too fast. It was nice to be able to run at a comfortable pace.
7 Mile Tempo Work
Easy 6 with strides at the end.
I like the idea of incorporating some short, fast speed work in the end of a longer run.
12 Mile Run
Confession: The furthest I've ever run before is only 7 miles. This 12 miler actually felt good and it was at a nice, comfortable pace as well. This became one of my favorite workouts of the week.
This was not recommended I know, but I am still glad I did it.
This was a very successful week of training. I tweaked the days for next week and am anxious to see how this will look moving forward.
