Week 15

Work commitments meant I was unable to run on the Monday, instead I was able to run Tuesday instead as per the 10km training plan - I covered 4 miles at tempo pace.

Wednesday I simply ran home. Thursday as another session on the plan - it was supposed to be 4-6 lots of 1km at cruise interval pace which is around 20 seconds per mile slower than my goal pace - but instead I did a progression run starting off easy into a tempo.

Saturday I volunteered at ParkRun so ran there and back. To make up for shorter saturday mileage I covered 11 miles at Zone 2 heart rate zone - which for me is up to 148 bpm. This run was around 15 seconds per mile faster than my last attempt on this route.
