Sam’s Running Diary – Training for the London Marathon Week 2

Week 2

Well, if the snow wasn’t a pain towards the end of last week it certainly is this week, cold, wet and now icy and slushy; my Monday lunchtime run took a lot of motivation.

Starting to get the hang of Tempo runs now. This is a 30 minute run split into four 7 ½ minute sections. The first section is run at an easy pace, the second section at a medium pace and the final two sections are run at a hard pace.

Slightly concerned about the Sunday Run this week as I’m going up to Manchester for a friends Birthday on Friday and then have another party in Shropshire on Saturday night. Still have decided to take it easy on the alcohol for both evenings and am planning a run with my girlfriends uncle early Sunday morning.
