As the clock ticks over into 12 weeks to go until race 1, TrainAsOne (TAO) continues to plan my training. I’ve learned over the past few years that big mileage weeks don’t agree with me and certainly lacked consistency in my running from 2016-2017. Training with TAO has helped and I’m feeling good but not great about my fitness. Then again, I’m aware that if I felt at peak fitness now I’d be a bit worried about that too!
My first race of 2019 is in 2 weeks from now. The Lenham Cross Winter Marathon, 27.5 miles taking in the North Downs Way and with +4,600 feet will be a good test of my fitness.
Weekly mileage: 32 (5 runs, 4 easy, 1 time trial)
- Keep eating sensibly = 5lb lost, eating sensibly and limiting snacks
- Get some hill training in alongside the flat stuff = some hills in this weekend’s runs
