This week has been a bit of an easy week, taking a bit of time out before I start my half marathon training… and trying to get over my Achilles issue… 🙂 There’s still a little niggle, there but nothing too bad. Hopefully the two weeks off has done it good anyway.
And today was meant to be the day I ran the 53 miles of the Highland Fling… ( I pulled out ) .. looks like they’ve got a brilliant day for it anyway. Good luck to everyone who’s taking part, especially Paul, Katrina, John, Carolyne, Carole and Mark. 🙂
Anyway, here’s what I did this week:
Chest, Shoulders, Arms, Abs: 1hr
Ave HR: 125 (66%), Max HR: 155 (82%), Garmin Training Effect 2.6, Calories: 343.
Friday: Legs, Back Plyo: 1hr
Ave HR: 138 (73%), Max HR: 166 (87%), Garmin Training Effect: 3.0, Calories: 447.

Run: 2M to gym: 0:16:30
Ave HR: 145 (77%), Max HR: 154 (81%), Garmin Training Effect: 2.8, Calories: 145.
ViPR && TRX Circuits: 1:15:00
Ave HR: 129 (68%), Max HR: 145 (77%), Garmin Training Effect: 2.9, Calories: 452.
Sunday: Rest / Yoga.
A nice wee easy week: 4 rest days, 3 strength workouts and a bit of cardio and a bit of walking too. 🙂
Today I tried out some ViPR and TRX workouts. Andy the gym instructor was there so he put us through our paces which was good. It’s good to be shown different things in the gym and be pushed to do new things too. We were using the ViPR and Core bags in a circuits workout, then went onto TRX for about half an hour getting to know that. I’ll get a workout for the TRX up soon.
Here’s my Heart Rate graph from Saturday Morning’s workout:
Next week I’ll be picking it up a bit with a little more running hopefully, Monday morning and maybe Thursday morning to try out my Achilles.
And the same amount of Circuits / Strength work I think. 🙂
Lastly – today we’re off to Kelvin Hall to see this: Scot Fit Xpo we’ll see how it is and probably go out for a nice wee lunch too. 🙂
