So the Galway Ironman 70.3 is done and dusted for another year. Now time to settle down to some focussed running in an attempt at running my goal of 3:30 in Dublin City Marathon.
I've been fairly consistent with longish runs, tempo and interval sessions over the course of the Spring & Summer, so there's a solid aerobic base, just need to extend the run durations for the next few weeks.
This week was mainly a recovery week from the exertations of the weekend and I knew I'd be busy making up for time off work, plus I had an off-site analysis and shoe presentation to do in Athlone this week.
Running this week:
Tuesday (4/9) - easy recovery run 4.8k, 27 mins AHR 131bpm APace 5:46min/km
Friday (7/9) - a basic run to stretch legs 13.7k, 01:07 AHR 150bpm APace 4:53min/km
Sunday (9/9) - basic run to work 9.6k, 46mins, AHR 155bpm, APace 4:50min/km
Total for recovery week: Distance 28.1km Duration 2:21:08
Next week will bring the training back in earnest.
