Autumn training

I’m into my second week back after coming back from holiday, and I haven’t gone back to Insanity yet.  The plan was to have two weeks off, then two weeks (6 days) of Insanity Core Cardio and balance.

But the gym in Bellahouston, and the whole top floor is being renovated and is not accessible for the next few months, so if we want to do Insanity we need to find another place to do it.

To be honest, I think it might be an idea to put off the next block of Insanity (8 weeks, 3 times a week) until the gym is back up functioning and we can use one of the spare rooms.

Fit Girl is replacing her runs with swims, and I started going along with her.  I’m enjoying swimming right now, so might do that until we can get the room for Insanity.  Swimming might also be an option if at any time I want to take some time out from running due to injury, as long as I swim 3-4 times a week. 

Anyway, here’s what I’m thinking a week’s training could consist of for the next wee while (bearing in mind my niggle in my right knee):

Run: 3 times, short (speed?) 1-4 miles, medium easy 5 miles, long up to 8 miles.
Swim: 3 x 2500m swim (and extra time if I have time in the week/fancy it)
Circuits: 1 x 45 mins.
Basketball perhaps?

Monday:
AM: Run: Long run 8 miles
PM: Swim

Tuesday:
PM: Swim

Wednesday:
AM: Circuits
PM: Swim (or run 1-4 miles)

Thursday:
AM: Medium easy run 5 miles
PM: Run 1-4 miles (or Swim), Basketball?

Friday:
Rest

Saturday:
AM: (Swim if missed one) or Run 1-4 miles speed work.

Sunday:
Rest / Teach Swimming

As you can see, it’s a bit flexible, if I don’t swim, I’ll run and if I don’t run, I’ll swim.  😀

Ideally I’ll get the swim out of the way at the start of the week, or by Thursday and do my runs: Monday (or Tuesday AM if I can’t get out of bed Monday lol 😉 ), Thursday, Saturday.
