End of the week round-up

Another good running week where everything pretty much went according to plan. I did a total of 20.7 miles this week (over 4 runs), with a total of 3 hours and 11 minutes 'time on my feet' so I am pleased with this.

This week I am going to try to do 5 runs over the course of the week, I know this is going to be hard but I think that if I am going to get my fitness levels up to the standard they need to be for the marathon (and in time for the marathon!) then I do need to squeeze this extra run in each week, or most weeks. I am also going to try to increase my longer run again, pushing to 80 minutes this week compared to 70 minutes last week. I am happy with the general format of my training so I don't want to change too much; I will just try to increase my longer runs each week, not major amounts but enough to keep pushing my endurance levels.

Happy running everyone :-)

Good going Charlie, you've slipped right back in to the routine and you're building it up in a controlled way. Bet you wonder why you ever stopped :-)

Thanks Roy - yes I certainly do wonder why; but the main thing is the passion has returned and it feels great!!
