My 5 week plan …

It’s 5 full weeks until my holiday to San Diego and after the last two weeks of feeling sick and having a sore throat / cough, I’m keen to get back into training. But only when I’m ready. I plan to start training again next week, but I’ll see how I am. I’ll try it out tomorrow see how I am.

September is going to be a busy month for me. Hen night in Inverness one weekend, then a wedding the next and a wedding dance the next. Lots of travel and days out. Life might get in the way doing need to get a plan (and I need to start practicing walking in my new shoes too!) 😉

For my training, I want to do cardio, either swims or runs, and strength training. And I’ll have the odd coaching session to replace some of my own cardio I’d think.

I’m away to Edinburgh a few days in september too, so I’ll take those days as rest days… but here’s the general plan outside of that:

Mon: AM Swim / PM Run

Tue: AM Strength / PM Rest

Wed: AM Swim or run / PM Run

Thu: AM Strength / PM Rest

Fri: AM Swim / PM Rest

Sat: Strength & Run / Rest

Sun: Rest / Swim Teaching

2-3 strengths (Tue, Thu, Sat),
3 cardio (Mon, Wed, Fri)
1-2 rests (Sun +)
1-2 coaching. (tbc?)

Here’s the main theme of the weeks;

5 – 25/8 – Back into it
4 – 1/9 – Ed on Tues, Inv on Sat
3 – 8/9 – Ed on Mon, Wedding Sat
2 – 15/9 – Inv on Sat (dance)
1 – 22/9 – normal
0 – 29/9 – Holiday
