At the begining of last week i got in touch with one of the ladies from the Kirkby Milers, Linda Greengrass (permission was granted to name drop 👍😊)
Linda has run 8 Marathons, worked in the fitness industry for 23 years and is a legend for providing and helping other runners with action plans for running a Marathon, she is also training at the moment for her 1st Ultra.🏃♀️🏃♀️💚
Linda has drawn up a bespoke plan, easy to follow (Hopefully) and lots of hints, tips and links to watch online. Some pointers when to increase my miles and when to run shorter runs to achieve consistency- this week ive converted KM to Miles-Its all about the Miles now.
Due to work and family commitments I only managed to run at the track with the Kirkby Milers on Wednesday, 3.19miles (just over 5k for those still using KM’s 😉)
This was the first week since starting that i have only run once! I wasnt a happy bunny either 😡
Then my Son kindly passed a dose of his Little Man Flu over to me 🤧 so i didnt run at the weekend as planned either ☹️
Tonight – The good old “I’ll start on Monday” mantra.
It’s really cold now but i have to keep on, stretch my legs and progress through my new plan.
Then this happened!
5k all in one go, not only that but the quickest 5k i have ever run! Technically my 1st PB? Erm sorry i meant 3.12 Miles 🤔
Ill get the hang of this KM to Miles! Promise 🤞🏻
Clocking up the mini achievements now and feeling really pleased with my progress!
The week ahead…… follow the plan and invest in some warmer running kit!! ☃️
