tiiiti's new training log (Half Marathon here I come)

#1 Postby tiiiti » Tue Nov 24, 2009 12:56 pm

I while back I kept a training log here, but kinda faided it. Haven't stop training though. Actually I just realized that I've lost 15cm (about 6") on my waist since september 2008. Weird.

Anyhow.. I've desiced to run the Half Marathon (Helsinki City Run) on 8th of May 2010. Since I can barely run for an hour straight (very slowly that is) now I need to get training.

Today I could finally start training. I had a bit of a flu for a while, and now that I've had a few healthy days I figured I could. It was all rainy and stuff, so I runned on a treadmill for 36minutes at 7,5km/h pace. My heart rate went I bit higher than I hoped.. But I bet that's cos I had the flu.

So, training week 1:
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 36minute run, 4,5km. (treadmill)

Wednesday:
Gym - legs, chest, back + about a 30 minute run (4,25km).
I think I need to take it more slowly. My heartrate shoots right up. It's always gets kinda high, but I feel this is bit abnormal.

Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Went to the gym (arms & shoulders & abs) + 45minute Spinning class (indoor cycling)

My heart rate didn't go through the roof in spinning. Yay!

Hi tiiiti,

good you started a log again!!

my pb on the 10k is from a race in finland (november).

it's hard to train there in the winter.

I never lived there just went for holliday, but guess I have a fair idea.

in the gym it might be good to use cross trainer.

saw some sports halls had indoor tracks.

good luck!!
