Here’s what I did in week 5 of my training for the Highland Fling:
Mon: AM: 5M easy Rest, PM: 30 mins Upper weights, Bodypump, 5 mile easy run home.
Tue: AM: Kettlebell, PM: Swim or run Rest Day
Wed: AM: Circuits, PM: 8.5M easy, progressive speed
Thu: AM: Weights Rest, PM: 60 mins speedwork: 12, 6 x 3:3, 12, 8M.
Fri: AM: Lower Weights (ouch – tired my legs out for my long run!!)
Sat: 4 hour run, Gleniffer Braes
Sun: Rest (Teaching Swimming)
I feel like I had a good week and have recovered well from the long run on Saturday.
This week, week 6 is meant to be a recovery week, so less running, more strength work, although I think I’ll keep up my Thursday night run session as it’s been good the last two weeks:
I’ll maybe try some hills on Wednesday night if I can find some. 🙂
I’m not sure about Tuesday yet… it might become a bit of a rest day, or I might do Kettlebell in the morning, and maybe a swim or spin or both at night.
Mon: AM: 5M easy recovery run, PM: Upper weights & Bodypump
Tues: AM: Kettlebell / Rest, PM: Spin & Swim
Wed: AM: Circuits, PM: 5-8M Hills
Thu: AM: Lower weights, PM: 60 mins speedwork: 12 min warm up, 12 x 90 secs fast: 90 secs recovery, 12 mins cool down.
Sat: Long walk… not sure where yet… Gleniffer Braes? West Highland Way?
