LVB’s London Marathon Training 2017 – Week 2

 

run4

Distance clocked this week:  29 miles. 5 runs. My  recovery run the day after my 12 miles was only 4.5 miles but I found it a little more challenging than anticipated as my legs were pretty tired. However, I need to get used to running on tired legs so I embraced the feeling. I have also been trying to up my pace a little on my shorter runs.

Long run: 12 miles. It was incredibly rainy and muddy. The last 4 miles weren’t the best as I was thoroughly soaked by this time but still felt good and no problems with my pesky hamstring.

Nutrition: This is the first week I have really started to focus on my nutrition again and making more healthy choices, although I’m pretty good at having a balanced diet, it’s more the reigning back of the cake that I need to work on. So, more salads and veg for me. The night before my long run I had a jacket potato, beans and salad. The morning of, I had chocolate porridge. I refuelled with a big salad for lunch and Pesto Pasta and veg for dinner.

What am I listening to? The Ginger Runner podcast – in particular the episode interviewing Ben Gibbard (from Death Cab For Cutie, no less) about his first 100 mile race. Say what?

Cross Training: Adding in to my post run routine, some press ups, crunches, lunges and squat jumps.

Lessons Learnt : Take water if running for more than 10 miles. I usually would but this time I couldn’t find my water belt so was rather parched by the time I got back. Not recommended.

You can find my week 1 post here.

Thanks for reading.
