At least I am not working at the moment, and so I can make the most of the daylight that there is. I am running about four or five times a week, which roughly breaks down as:
- Long run (10-ish miles), normally on a Sunday
- Sweaty Betty running club (4-ish miles) on Tuesday
- Two other short-ish runs (3-4 miles), incorporating some sprints and also some squats/lunges/ab work etc
- Slightly longer tempo run (about 6 miles)
I am also trying to go to either hot yoga or pilates on a Monday, since this is normally the day after my long run, and I think it's a good idea to incorporate some deeper stretching.
It's working OK so far, and my routine won't change too much once the marathon training kicks in after Christmas. The runs will just get longer...
