Wk9 – Circuits

Wednesday morning and my legs were well and truly shot.  After a few weeks of rest imposed by a cold…

Saturday was:
13 mile walk.
Sunday was:
Rest and teach swimming.
Monday was:
AM: An hour of Leg Weights
PM: Easy 5k run on treadmill, Bodypump
Tuesday was:
AM: Rest
PM: Spinfit, 45 mins then 7 mile progressive run.

My legs were sore already on Tuesday, now they’re still sore.  🙂  I’ll stop moaning though, and let you know what training I did this morning. 😉  That’s what happens when you do no training for 2 weeks then beast it for a few days.  Soon they’ll be like blocks of steel and able to handle anything. lol  😉
