Training for 2019 started a few days earlier in December 2018 .. I had a few days off and decided I would try out what I thought would work better for me as I pile on the miles towards the full marathon i'm aiming for with my new challenge .. To be honest I Dont really need to do much training for the half marathons I have planned .. I now find I can run them most days at a steady pace of around 2hrs without trying .. lucky me !

My original plan was to run 5 miles walk 1 mile and so on and so on .. giving me reasonable breaks in between running sections which I did try and it did help me to slow down my pace sufficiently but I was still hurting after the 14th mile .. so much so I gave in that first attempt at around 15 miles .. with a lot of walking in that last section of the run.

So day two's trial I went with a 3/1 formula .. I ran the first mile then walked a quarter of a mile .. followed by running the next three quarters of a mile and so on and so on. This formula seems to work fine and I managed to keep to an almost even pace although it was the day after running the 15 trial yesterday .. tired legs and feet hindered me a little but the overall effect of the 3/1 was satisfying and really helpful, so the next set of training runs will be at this formula and lets just see what happens as I progress and up the miles. I feel comfortable with the plan so far and I will chronicle all my training runs in this part of the website to keep an close eye on the progression.

 
 

December 2018 early training runs

 

Sunday 27th - 12.50 miles in 2:02:34 just a standard full run with no set breaks ... first run in a week

Tuesday 29th - 15.02 miles in 2:37:40 with 5/1 mile walk breaks ... sufficient to get slower pace

Wednesday 30th - 14.01 miles in 2:32:16 with new 3/1 mile breaks ... great ratio ... will try for a while

41.53 miles

So, January was a bad month for training as I ended up seeing a Sports Physio for a tight ankle so had to cut back on the runs and concentrate on doing my Physio exercises. Hoping that it sorts itself out and I can get back to a decent training level again before the rest of my races coming up.

69.3 miles this month ..
bit of a disappointment but due to slight niggling injury I’ve played it quite safe.

Bad month this month due to injured IT band and having to rest and concentrate on physio exercises given. Decide to try some cross training on bike to see how that goes and to go back to basics and start again with safe 5k runs.
