Weekly training recap: 30th March – 5th April 2015

Happy Easter Everybody!

Monday:

Rest day!

Tuesday:

Ran 1.62miles using run/walk intervals of 1 minute each. Average pace: 12’54” per mile.

Wednesday:

Rest Day

Thursday:

Ran 1.13miles continuously without walking breaks! Average pace: 12’11” per mile.

1 mile without any walking breaks! woohoo!

Saturday:

Went for a medium length walk around Rhossili on the Gower. Some rather steep hill walking as well as some flat walking.

So lucky to live where we do!

Sunday:

Ran 2.00miles using run/walk intervals of 1 minute each. Average pace: 12’36” per mile.

We use the nike+ app to track our run’s however we have noticed some slight discrepancies lately. We turn our apps on at the same time, and run together, but Gideon’s registers that we have ran a mile quicker than mine. This mean’s that his average pace always registers as slightly faster than mine. For example, on our 1.00mile run without walking on Thursday, Gideon’s app shows our average pace as 9’46”. Mine comes out as quite a bit slower than this, despite the fact we are running together. Therefore, in reality I expect our real distance and pace is somewhere in between Gideon’s app reading and my app reading.

I’m quite looking forward to doing our first 5k so we can get a proper time and work out how fast we are really going from that.

Goal for the week: 

Cover approximately 8 miles over the week, and cut down the walking intervals on shorter runs to 0.45 walking and 1 minute running.
