Running Again

I did my first long run in a long time today – it was long overdue; Stockholm Marathon is only 104 days away. Based on my only sub-3 hour marathon that I know works I’m about 3 to 4 weeks behind schedule.

I ran 16km tonight using a 10:1 run:walk protocol – I think that is going to be the only way I’ll get back on track -distance wise- and remain injury free. I’ll get back to the gym on Wednesday, run a couple more times this week and see where I stand after that… tick tock, goes my Marathon clock!

The numbers from tonight:

15.9 km, 143 av. HR, 4:53 min/km (that’s including the walking)

I have been really enjoying the cycling that I have been doing instead of the running I should have been doing!
