Friday 13th - An attempt at a treadmill session and then an outside run // Mr B: Rest day
Tried to do a treadmill session but MiniB decided that he wasn’t going to play ball. Mr B tagged me out when I got in and off I went for an easy 30.
Me - 4.69miles in total, 3.18 outside.
Saturday 14th - Me: 30mins S&C/ Mr B: 70 minute Long Run; Pick up middle 50 minutes to Marathon Pace
Given that Mr B has been training through snow and freezing temperatures, but now London looks like it was going to be hot, it made sense to wait until the afternoon of a sunny day to get his last long run in so at least he could get a bit of a reminder about what it is like to run in the heat! We went out to a nice country pub (as did the rest of the world) and I sat and did the crossword with Mini B while Mr B went out running. It’s nearly show time!
My S&C took 1 hr with interruptions for Mini B but I managed to get 30mins of my pre-pregnancy session done - just kept the resistance lower than previous.
Mr B - 8.53mi, 7’14/mi in middle section,
Sunday 15th - Me: An unscheduled 40mins thanks to grandparents // Mr B : Massage
The grandparents are staying and we’d been to a running friend’s birthday drinks earlier in the day and been hanging out with lots of inspiring running ladies so although I wasn’t planning to go for a run, the opportunity was there and I couldn’t resist! Probably went a bit too far and a bit too fast but I’ve got two non-running days now so I guess it’s ok? Must be sensible. I have a bruise down my shin which could be a stress bruise but is probably just me being clumsy - I just can’t remember doing it. Anyway, better keep an eye on that.
Mr B had a sports massage with the excellent Hannah Stobbes (http://www.hannahstobbssportsmassage.co.uk/) - she’s ace and great value.
Me - 5.12mi, 38:37, 7:32/mi,146bpm average
Mr B - 19.5
Me - 17 miles
