Marathon Preparation – Update – Second Week – Increasing the distance and setting records #SpektorMarathonChallenge2016
Second marathon week and counting, here is how I spend this second week…
I did 4 runs this week.
Run1: Tuesday, 7km in 33 minutes (Part of Running Room clinic)
Run2: Wednesday 10 km in 55 minutes (Part of Running Room clinic)
Run3: Friday ~ 6km in 31 minutes (on my own)
Run 4: Sunday (Long Distance Slow Run) 13km in 1 hour 27 minutes (Part of Running Room clinic)
On Saturday I also did weight training in the gym.
As I decided to go Vegan for 30 days and prepare for marathon at the same time, it is a double challenge, but very rewarding.
Sample meals this week: Quinoa Soup with beans, beans and rice, kale chips and veggie burgers. Having no meat and diary gave me more energy!
– Felt Long Distance run being too slow for me
– Set 5km and 10 km records during Running Room clinic runs
– On Sunday was running in the rain with phone tracking distance which is a bad idea, because phone is not water proof. Need to buy a running watch
– Would be useful to see pace at all times, so another reason to buy a running watch
Good training week without injuries. Eating Vegan gave extra energy!
