Monday – Rumble class at the newly opened 1Rebel with my friend Loz before work. After work I took my favourite BarreStretch class – the ideal class after Sunday’s long run, plus I sleep really well afterwards!
Tuesday – 4 x 1 mile repeats. 6.58, 6.59, 6.46, 6.55. I actually really enjoy mile repeats, you don’t have to run as fast as the 800m repeats but they’re over pretty quickly!
Wednesday – Barrecore Mixed class.
Thursday – Rest day
Friday – 1 mile warm up, 7 miles at 7.50 pace on the new Technogym MyRun treadmill at the Technogym headquarters in Italy. We were give the chance to test out this new snazzy bit of equipment , designed for home use, it has the largest surface area of an at-home treadmill, but is really compact in size. Instead of a screen, you use your iPad or tablet and control the treadmill using the app. You can preset your workout, which is especially useful when you’re running intervals or completing a tempo run with varying pace or inclines. Not only that, but you can use the app to track an outdoor run then translate that to a run on the treadmill! Plus you can download training plans to suit your distance, pace and ability to get you 5K, 10K, half or full marathon ready!
Saturday – BarreAsana class at Barrecore Mayfair with a friend before brunch at Nopi.
Sunday – 22 miles along the Thames tow path for my longest run in nearly a year! Average pace was 8.32 which felt pretty comfortable. I’m getting a bit bored with my long run route after 13 weeks although it’s quite nice knowing the exact distances between water shops and seeing similar faces running each weekend!
