I ended up doing 4 runs and 2 strength sessions, and had 2 rest days (Saturday and Sunday). Here’s what I did:
Monday had turned out to be a bit of a busy morning, last minute on Sunday night Fit Girl said she wanted to run early on Monday morning. I knew this would be a good way to get me up and out of bed, so I joined her before deadlift at the gym. 2 hours exercise before work.
Here’s the route, a slight variation on one I’ve done a few times on the Southside of Glasgow. When I finished I text my boss to let her know id be in at 930 instead of 9 as if run a half marathon. Lol. Easy peasy.
Now although I only did 2 strength sessions last week (the goal is 3 a week), in taking today (sunday) off. We’ll go out for lunch and maybe go a walk somewhere.
Here’s my plan for next week:
Mon: Deadlift Strength
Tue: 5M run
Wed: Squat Strength
Thu: 8M run
Fri: Deadlift Strength (or rest)
Sat: long run (or strength)
I’ll see how I get on later in the week. But the plan again is 3 runs and 3 strength days, maybe 1-2 rest days. I’m not sure what’s happening next weekend, so I’ll probably just make it up later in the week.
I’ve done a bit more looking into my weight vs body fat, now compared to a few years ago. With my weight going up, but my body fat going down, it’s a little hard to get your head around.
See this post from dec 2013 when I started working with Mr Muscle PT: https://lornpearsontrains.co.uk/2013/12/12/my-nutrition-plan-and-measurements/
All of the numbers are up (slightly), except for body fat which is down slightly. Got to be a good thing. 🙂
Now I just need to work out how much slower I should be running by having an extra 8-10lbs of weight on my body. 😉
