Well....... I was thinking about getting a Run The Edge training plan for a 10k, even though I've done a few. I thought it would be good to follow a new plan to train up to do a stronger, quicker 10k if possible.
Instead, I've dug out my Run The Edge 13.1 training plan again and I'll use that first of all to train to run a stronger 10k and leave myself with the option of continuing it up to readiness for a half marathon.
I know, I know, I know! I tried it once before in 2014 with the Lancaster Castle Half Marathon in mind, but it didn't come off because, well, it just didn't work out because I worked too hard at it. In the end I just did the 10k and got a decent time of a few minutes just over the hour.
So, if the plan works out that I can get a better 10k out of the plan, it will set me up nicely at the same time to go on to a half marathon. Like a springboard, if you see what I mean.
Anyway, with that in mind I picked up at Level 7 this morning and did 5 run 3 jog; 10 run 3 jog; 5 run 3 jog (minutes that is) It went ok.
Oh, and I've started to eat more before I go for my runs. I feel better during and after if I do.
