Training: Week 1

Week one is complete!

Goal was:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Week 1 weights 5k swim 5k weights 7K Fast hot yoga

 

What I did was:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Week 1 Walk 8k 5K slowrun 5K fast run 4k run/walk Rest 7K Fast 4K run/walk

Very pleased with my 7K run, I ran 10 minutes walked 1 minute and was running at 6:30 min/kilometre which is a good pace for me.

I did a run with a neighbour on Tuesday who is also training for the 10K, but, the use of the word “run” is probably a bit of a stretch, my average heart rate was only 128 and our average speed was 5K per hour which is MUCH MUCH Less than my normal walking pace, sorta awkward though as I really don’t want to run with her again, it’s not even running, its more hoping up and down in one place while slowly moving forward, and I’m not a fast runner at all!

I did 2 run/walks with another neighbour who is training for her first 5k, we ran 90 seconds and walked 90 seconds, and while it’s not really part of my actual training, I don’t mind running with her because when we do the running portion we are running at a normal pace.

So, not sure what I am going to do about neighbour #1, I don’t mind running with her if I run my own pace ahead, but, how do I say that? When ever I go running with my husband he always goes his own pace (faster than me at the beginning then slower at the end)…. Any suggestions?
