It's now just 20 days until I run the Southampton Marathon so this is my last chance of having a very intense week - and that's what I'm planning for!
Today was an easy 15km/9 mile effort at a pretty comfortable 4:50/km - 5:00/km pace. It was really enjoyable, with my legs feeling really fresh from a little less active week post-Norwich Half, and it was nice to run at a very comfortable pace for once; I love being able to run fast, but I absolutely love being able to take everything in and not be pushing through pain the whole time.
In terms of the route, I tried out something a little different - going through Green Walk, heading out towards Grateley/Palestine, looping back down the Railway Line for a big chunk, and then back through Allington and up through the Nature Reserve back into Newton Toney. I was a little unsure about one track that last time I ran was really, really muddy, but it was absolutely bone dry! A really pleasant route, that I'll definitely be running more of!
My plan for the rest of the week is to have a rest day tomorrow, run a steady ~10km with some intervals chucked in on Wednesday, a speed session on Thursday, aim for a PB at Parkrun on Saturday, and then do my long 30-32km run on Sunday. It's going to be a tough, tough week on the legs, so lots of self-love is going to be needed! I might go for a bike ride on one of the rest days in order to spin my legs out a little, but hopefully I'll be able to cope with a 65km+ weekly mileage.

Nice job! I did about the same distance today myself, though I'm a wee bit slower than you are. Hope the rest of your training week goes smoothly!0.000 SBD | 0 | 0 |
