Sore = time to rest

The plan this week was to alternate running with strength work as follows:

Mon: Run
Tue: Strength
Wed: Run
Thu: Strength

And then I’d have a long weekend (off Friday) and do what I wanted with Fit Girl over the weekend.

I did my strength training on Tuesday night:
KB Swings, Squats with 56kg of weight, Clean n Press singles 12kg, Rows, Deadlifts 46kg, Sledgehammers and plyometrics.

I wasn’t feeling it on Wednesday morning and did a good 5 mile hill run with Gill on Wednesday morning. Then the pain started to flood in. :-S

Sore quads, top of my calves, hamstrings, forearms, biceps. Quite a lot is sore, but it’s a good sore.

So I’ve decided not to strength train today. I figured my form wouldn’t be as good as it could be (because I’m sore) and I’ll do it at some point before the end of the week instead.

I do fancy a wee run, maybe at lunchtime if I get the time. But in the meantime, I’ll rest and recover and hopefully clear the DOMS I got from my workout (and my hill run perhaps).

The next strength workout I’ll do will involve press ups, squats, rows, chest press, snatches and plyometrics. Maybe on Friday, or more likely on Saturday.

Today I’ll try to refrain from saying ‘ow, ow, ow’ when I get up etc, before a long – whatever I want to do – weekend. 🙂

Rest is good and if I don’t run today, I’ll run another day. A nice wee lie in for me today, a big drink of water and catching up with the news.
