Hansons Marathon Method - Review in Progress - Day 35 of 123
Thursday is Tempo Day! And this week, we took it up a notch. Under the Hansons plan, the first three weeks have no tempo workouts, the next three weeks have 6 mile tempo workouts, then the next three weeks have 7 mile tempo workouts, then 8, then 9 and finally 10. This was my first week at the 7 mile mark.
So the workout looked like this:
-.5m warm up
-7m at marathon race pace (7:49)
-.5m cool down
For a total of 8 miles. This was a tough one, but I actually felt a little more comfortable for most of it than I did last week. Hopefully, my body is adjusting to the pace a bit and I'm working my way into better shape.
