Welcome to my very first blog post here on The FOD Runner! It is currently 6am on November 5th 2016 and we are in the middle of our “base building” winter training phase. As you are joining me part way through this I would recommend you hop over to YouTube and watch some of the latest training videos i’ve put up as that will give you an indication as to what I have been up too! Or, alternatively find out what our winter goals are here:
So to fill in you guys in briefly, we are currently running 4 times a week at the moment, which consist of:
1) Rep Session
2) Easy Run
3) Workout Session
4) Long Run
This training has been ongoing for 5 weeks now so we are fully in the swing of things, progression is happening and a couple of weeks ago I ran a PB half marathon time in training of 1.27.58, which im delighted with!
We have one more race left of this year, which is the Newent 9 race, a 9.5k undulating tarmac road race in a couple of weeks but other than that….we are looking ahead to the first half marathon of next year, Newport on March 6th!
I hope you will enjoy reading my blogs and watching my videos, any feedback is always greatly appreciated!
Stay tuned for the next update where I will be documenting my weeks training!
