Last week was good, 3 runs, a swim / swim lesson, a trip to Edinburgh and 3 rest days. Not to mention a good all over massage on Thursday night, by the amazing Clare at Fitness a Therapy Glasgow.
Remind me to always have rest days after a massage though, as it unfortunately appeared to wreck my calves, hamstrings and shoulders. Lol. It was, a brilliant massage though. 🙂
She asked at the start what I wanted her to work on and I said my legs for my running. So she did and it was great. Then she did a bit in my shoulders and I realised they were tight because of my swimming that morning. So ouch ouch ouch all around.
Next week, I have a few coaching sessions, and will do a 20 miler on Sunday fingers crossed.
And I’m going to start strength training next week too: simple: a warm up then 4 sets of 4 compound exercises, 10 reps each. Heavy weights, with the odd intense exercise in between sets. And a finisher.
My nose clip and sudafed prevented my sinus headache after my swim, so the plan is to do two swims next week too. 80 lengths / 40 mins each time.
A lateish night at work on Tuesday, and a couple of rest days to help me recover too. Should be good. 🙂
