In the last couple of weeks I have gone from doing no running to being able to do 7km running without stopping or walking. Although, I am still not running very quickly at the moment.
I feel like the running is getting easier but I still have a long way to go to make sure that I will be ready for my challenge next year.
I have also been planing how I will go about the challenge next year.
Firstly there is nutrition. I am going to have to make sure that my diet is a lot healthier and more nutritious to help with recovery and try to help with preventing injury and sickness. This also means that I will also have to avoid alcohol as things like hangovers could easily force me off target.
Secondly there is the distance. It is a long way so it is easier to see it in smaller chunks.
This would about 31km per week or 4.4km per day.
I am therefore going to be looking to deal with this on a weekly basis as it will mean I will have a few recovery days each week. My current plan is something like this:
Monday – 5km
Tuesday – 7km
Wednesday – REST
Thursday – 5km
Saturday – 10km
