Wk43 into Wk44

So this week went pretty much to plan, except for feeling a little crappy on Wednesday after waking up half way through the night and only getting 3.5 hrs sleep (and DOMS from hell on Friday).

I tried to balance off the lack of sleep on Wednesday, with an early night on Thursday night, getting 10 hours sleep, so hopefully that’ll help get me back to normal.

I’m not sure if it was the evening workout that kept me awake, or other stuff, but 3.5 hrs sleep is not on! Hopefully I’ve balanced it out and an feeling a bit more human now.

Anyway here’s what I’ve done / am doing:

Sun: 7M run wi Ewen

Mon: 3.2M run wi Fit Girl
Tue: Rest (5M walking)
Wed: 46 mins Strength Training
Thu: 5.1M run
Fri: Rest
Sat: 6M run wi Fit Girl
Sun: Strength Training (before swimming teaching week 3, 6 to go!)

The DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) are bad today, two days on. Yesterday I could simply feel it, but today I’m sore. Sore quads, glutes, torso (back and front!), sore shoulders and even chest. (From squats, shoulder presses, sledgehammers and press ups).

Ideally I’d have liked to have done another strength session today, but I’ll build myself in gently to it (and take a rest day today). I’m back into running comfortably, so next, I’ll get my body used to lifting heavy things again.

I’m hoping to find a weekly plan that works for me, enough rest, with running and strength training that compliments each other. Plus the odd swim once that all settles down.

Running the day after strength works, but two days after, it’s not ideal. But maybe the DOMS will get better the more I get into training.

One thing I have noticed this week (Wed and Thu) is a little annoying tickle of a cough. It seems to come and then go just as mysteriously, but I’ll keep an eye on that.

So once this week is over, I’ll start again, and next week will be:

Mon: Swim (or 30 min run)
Tue: 3.1M run
Wed: Strength Training
Thu: 8M run
Fri: Strength Training
Sat: 5M run wi Fit Girl
Sun: Rest

And I’ll do the majority of my training in the morning (except if in running with FG then I’ll run at 6pm through the week).
