This week has been a bit strange for me… off the back of a recovery week with not much exercise, I wanted to get back into training this week. My sleep hasn’t been quite right and it’s affecting my training.
My plan was:
Wed: Swim or Strength
But right away that was put out as I decided I’d do a short run and on Sunday before the week started and decided I’d start Monday with an easy hour run.
Tuesday morning for some reason I was knackered so I decided to sleep til 730am instead of getting up for strength training. Rest day thank you very much.
Wednesday, 33 mins of hard strength work and a restless night meant I would only get about 5 hours sleep if I went for a run early on Thursday.
So Thursday I had a rest day with some coaching at night. And I’m still sore DOMS from strength on Wednesday.
I need to:
– Get to bed earlier and get at least 8 hrs sleep a night (10pm-6am, or even earlier to bed!)
– Get back into regular morning training.
– Get myself a plan for this week and next:
Mon: 7M Run
Wed: Squat Strength
Fri: Deadlift Strength + 30 min run
Sat: Long run
Mon: Squat Strength
Tue: 4M run
Wed: Deadlift Strength + 30 min run
Thu: 5M run
Fri: Swim (or rest)
Sun: 10M Relay run
Without a plan I cop out too easily, with a plan I try to stick to it or compromise based on how I’m feeling. So tomorrow it is Deadlift strength and a wee 30 min run before breakfast.
And I’ll buy berries on the way home for breakfast! Got to keep my super strength challenge in mind! 7 weeks to my holidays!
Ps: I’m off to bed!
