This is a recap of how the second week went. It was an relatively easy week of running with a few rest days leading on to my first event of this year The Tussock Traverse 26k trail run. So here is what happened in week 2.
Monday – 21st Jan – REST DAY! Apart from going for a walk I just chilled out. And being a public holiday (Wellington Anniversary day) it was nice just to chill out!
Tuesday – 22nd Jan – planned 10k @ 80% effort at about 4:40 pace. Managed to do this relatively easily with even splits. Jogged 1k so total of 11ks.
Wednesday – 23rd Jan – 14k run at about 4:30 pace. I did about 12kms at this pace and slowed down the last 2km to recover. Total 14kms done.
Thursday – 24th Jan – 10km easy pace as a recovery run. Did this one at about 5:30 pace. Lots of stretching and foam rolling to relax the muscles before the Saturday race.
Friday – 25th Jan – REST DAY! Drove to Tongariro National Park!
Saturday – 26th Jan – The Tussock Traverse – read the full race recap here!
Sunday – 27th Jan – Rest day! Easy 2hr walk in Natiional Park and a relaxing day!
So here’s to the next three weeks of running leading up to Wellington Round The Bays remaining injury free!
