- DCM 2011, anything under 4 hours (the biggie )
- Sub 1hr 50 for a half marathon
Started P&D 18/55 today. I’m currently digesting the book, seems ok, some of the lingo is a little confusing. I plan to enjoy as many races as I can fit in along the way, hope to do the DCM race series, the Midlands HM & the Dublin Mountain plod.
This week’s plan:
|Wed||General aerobic 9m|
|Fri||LT 8m with 4m @hm pace|
|Sun||Medium-long run 12m|
June 27th: Pilates, a lot easier than last week, instructor a tad more forgiving
June 28th: Run day 1. Legs still a little tired after Enniscorthy so re-jigged week 1 to have the recovery run today. I haven’t yet worked out the correct pace for each run, but I think my recovery runs should be between 10:15 & 10:30. Tonight’s 4 mile recovery was @ 10:13 pace, almost slow enough but it felt like I was shuffling along. Really enjoyed it once I got going, nice & cool out with the late evening sunshine, came home completely relaxed and spirits lifted. Hope at least half of my runs over the next 18 weeks are as enjoyable as tonight’s.
