Day One - Half Marathon Training - 2019
My training schedule for Half Marathon.
With a break of around 1.5 months, I am trying to get back on track with my IronMan training. With the help of Endomondo App, I have created a training plan for next 6 months.
This time my focus is to increase the pace, instead of just running 10/15 kms in an hour, an hour running technically is walking at the pace of 10min/km which is not good if you practice for running.
The plan was to start run training along with the strength training which I am already doing.
This is my training plan for the month of June and July.
And along with this I have to include cycling, swimming and strength training.
There are many advantages of strength training while preparing for iron man. A detailed guide I will publish later.
Today’s run was comparatively good run, because yesterday I ran with a pace of 10min/km which mostly was walking, today I was able manage 5 KM running and another 5 KM mixed running and walking. Pace was around 09min/km.
Following things I have learnt to avoid while doing my trainings and which has impact on performance.
Things to avoid doing at all times
- Sleep Deprivation
- Smoking & Alcohol
- Barefeet Running
- Skipping Stretching.
- Do not avoid proteins
While the above is to be avoided at all the times, most important is to sleep deprive yourself. I avoid running or doing anything where i feel i did not had proper sleep the night before.
I will post update on my tomorrow running.
