Marathon Training Week Two

I’m really pleased with how training has gone this week – the first week of the ‘go faster’ phase.  Just between Tuesday and Friday, I managed to run 5 miles 3 and a half minutes faster – including two sub-8 minute miles.  This was also the first week in a long time that I have run for more than an hour.  I felt really strong and ran comfortably much faster than I had planned.  This was also my first run with support from Tribe – delicious all-natural whole foods sports nutrition.  I’m taking fuelling myself for these longer runs really seriously as I don’t want to lose any weight and the Tribe range of bars, trail mix and shakes for energy and recovery seem like a great option.  I’m getting a pack a week so I’m excited to see what options arrive next week.

I know it’s very early days of my training but I’m really pleased with how it’s going so far.  I’m fitter and stronger than I realised and I’m taking great pride in my body’s ability to do this.

Miles run – 18.5

Average pace – 8.49min/mile

Hours of podcasts consumed – 2 hours 15
