It’s Thursday and I rather gratefully took yesterday off as a full rest day… the Ironing was piling up, and it had to be done, and it’s usually my punishment for skiving off exercise, so I took the housework and rested from running.
I think it’s important to rest, but still keep an eye on what I want to be doing without neccessarily sticking to the training plan. Flexibility is key, as is listening to my body and knowing when I need a break, or when I need to step it up.
This weeks training
This weeks training has gone a little off plan:
Tuesday: I didn’t
swim (but did Spin and a hill climb on a treadmill… 2250ft in 40 minutes)…
Wednesday: Rest day, instead of
Circuits and a hill run.
Thursday AM: I lay in bed instead of going to the gym for
This is afterall my ‘easy week’, so I’m using it to rest and recover, although I probably could have done with an early night last night instead of updating my blog and entering races!
Friday was meant to be a rest day, but as I took this on Wednesday/Thursday morning, I think I’ll do Lower Weights if I can drag my a$$ out of bed for 630! Then I’ll have Friday night off.
Saturday morning was meant to be a long walk in training for the WHW walk we’re doing, but it’s probably going to be a 6-10 mile run instead I think. Maybe up to Newton Mearns and back or something.
I have my relatives visiting Glasgow from Saturday to Wednesday, so I’ll need to fit them in somewhere too. 🙂 I’m looking foward to seeing them. x
