Get Fit Or Eat Pie Trying # Week 3

“For me its Get Fit Or Eat Pie Trying “

A under 2 hour half marathon
A under 50 minutes 10k

This week not only did we get the marathon numbers through the post that we have decied not to do also our letter from the people at London Marathon came through to tell me if I had a place…


We entered and didn’t get in :):):)

I know I should be sad but it was a huge relief as training up for a marathon was so much like hard work and having a large family I didn’t have hours free at the weekend to run.This is why I pulled out of the Chester Marathon which is a week on Sunday.

Onwards and upwards now and new goals to set and Pb to make!!.

I have decided to run Worksop half marathon in 4 weeks time so with the marathon training I did manage to do hopefully I should be ok.

In other news we have a park run starting near us this week..whoo this should be fun a free time 5k race every Saturday…

This weeks exercise was-

Friday- 6 miles ran

Saturday – 7 miles ran

Sunday – 5 miles ran

Monday – Day off from running

Tuesday – 3 miles warm up /cool down

4 miles reps,8x half mile reps

Was so pleased with these fastest I have run in a long long time.Average mile over 4 miles 7.50 pace

Wednesday – 4 miles slow recovery pace 11 mins a mile was hard work after yesterdays efforts
1 hour weights class
Thursday – 1 hour body combat
2 miles warm up/cool down
16 x 300 mtrs with 100 jog recovery could tell I had worked hard Tuesday as these was 8.42 pace!!

No whats everyone else been exercising to this week?

    Sounds like you've made the right decision with the marathon. That's why I've never fancied one, the training scares me, it's such a huge commitment. Good luck with your half 🙂

    You're getting in some strong runs! Yes- a marathon is a huge commitment… I'm still hoping to do a few more, but I definitely prefer the half!

    Gosh that is A LOT of training you've been doing!Wish I could run half as much as what you are doing.Park runs sound fun, i'll have to find out if they do any near us.

    Wow, that is some serious exercise! I feel a right slacker compared to you! Not surprised you've decided not to do marathon, it's such a huge commitment. I often think of you when I'm knackering myself out training! Good luck with Worksop 🙂 I'd love to do sub 2 hours on Sunday, but I'll settle for anything sub 2 hours 10.
