Sunrise was beautiful, but the beach was just way too rocky! Tried to enjoy an easy 20. Was easier to run than to enjoy. Glad I did it though!
I did my long run on the weekend and it was great.
This week will be my ‘recovery’ week and I will do 20:40:60.
So far I am also super delighted with changing to plant-based food. I guess I needed the switch. It is hard to explain, but since rethinking the way I eat I enjoy food and cooking again. It also overall feels much cleaner and lighter.
Did 48 yesterday and 24 today.
Also read my old blog entries and it is super motivating to see how far I have already come.
I did increase and did my 24 easy this morning.
My run yesterday was great. 66 minutes and more done. Basically I was out all day hiking running walking. It was great. Also I am on the third day of trying out a plant based diet. Not sure how long I will do this. It is an exiperiment. I comitted to 7 days. So far it has been a win. I did replace milk with Almond milk and I am ok with it. I don’t like soy so this was a big one for me.
Today I did a restday, so tomorrow is the next week and I just realised that I have to decide if I want to increase by 10% or stay where I am. I do feel good and I think I’ll increase. So it will be 24 minutes tomorrow!
Finally I think I am in good enough shape to run slow enough! I was able to my 22 minutes of easy slow running and my heartrate didn’t go over 145.
I think now I can really say that I am following Barry’s plan from slowtwitch and I am looking foward to see its effects. It is hard to run so slow, but I know this is the right way.
5k in 44 minutes slow running done. Sunrise was spectacular again. Just gotta love those Irish clouds!
