Raw Food Diet and Running

Raw Food Marathon Day Twelve

Here's the Hastings marathon training plan courtesy of Josh Scully.


Today called for a 15 mile run at 8:30 pace, which seems incredibly slow, back in March I was running 7:35 min/miles for 16 milers.

However given my lack of base and condition we're starting off slowly, gradually increasing the training so that my target marathon goal finish time increases from 3:30 to 3:15.


I had a setting on my Garmin which deleted the data as soon as I transferred it to my PC.
Unfortunately the exported file is too big to upload to MotionBased.

All set up now so future runs will be uploaded to Garmin.Connect.

Anyway here's a screen shot:


11 mile run


The pause just past 7 miles was to get a bottle of water and tie my laces, I went through a 1.2 litres of water in 1 hour!

As you can see I stopped at 11 miles, I had found the last two miles hard and was feeling a bit light headed(!). I'm glad I managed to average 8:28.

Anyway I stopped, walked for about 10 mins to the market and got a young coconut water, then ran 2 miles back home (not shown averaged 8:53/mile).

So much for negative splits!
To be honest I ran the first half without looking at the watch too much. I ran about 7.15 miles in 1 hour.

Where's my base?! Amazing how endurance just disappears if you don't use it.


Coach thinks it's a combination of being out of condition, hydration and carb utilisation and I'll be back on track within 4 weeks.

So in all I've run 13 miles this morning. Depending on how my legs feel I may go out for a 2-3 mile run this evening, failing that 5 miles on a bike.
