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…

Runs:

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.

Food:

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!

Findings:

– 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

Conclusion:

Good training week without injuries. Eating Vegan gave extra energy!
