Wk25 into Wk26

I’ve been a bit quiet, mainly because I’ve not being doing much training. 3 runs up to Thursday, plus a 3 hour (what wasn’t meant to be a) workout in the garden on Monday, and for some reason I was gubbed by the weekend.

So much so I didn’t fancy my 12 miler I’d planned, nor did I get my ass out the door for a shorter run. I figure I’ll get back to it next week after a good weekend resting.

But I did have a very busy 4 day week in work (working 5 days across 4), and by the time the weekend came, I wanted to just take some time out.

My boss was off on leave and we’ve got a big project to deliver next week, which I was getting ready for. As well as the day job and being out all day doing interviews on Friday. I stayed late at work, Tue, Wed, Fri. :-S

Here’s what I did last week anyway:

Mon: Rest (on leave) – garden upper workout!
Tue: am 10M fast finish run
Wed: rest
Thu: 2x 4M – am / pm
Fri: Rest
Sat: Rest
Sun: Rest

The two runs on Thursday were meant to have another in there at lunch time, which I’ll aim to do this week. I was just too busy at work to get a lunch break away from my desk. The 2 runs were good anyway.

The 10 miler on Tuesday felt great though, and I felt great all day. I thought, I must remember this feeling. It really set me up for the day and made me smile all day.

I didn’t do strength on Wednesday because I was sore after Monday, ripping up roots in my garden. That’s my next plan. Doing it up on the weekend. Hopefully it won’t take that long and it’ll turn into a nice place to sit.

This weekend I haven’t felt great, kind of sicky, and a bit lethargic. I hate feeling like this, but it’s here so I’m dealing with it and trying not to moan. I’ve been getting lots of sleep:

10 hours on Friday night, plus a nap = almost 12 hours sleep…

Then just over 10 hours sleep in Saturday night, which is telling me I’m needing it.

Anyway, hopefully it’ll all have helped me feel better for the new week, here’s my plan for next week:

Mon: 5M run (PT)
Tue: am 12M fast finish run
Wed: Strength
Thu: 3x 4M – am / lunch / pm
Fri: Rest
Sat: 10-15M long base run
Sun: Rest (gardening?)

I’ll maybe do the long run on Friday morning if I want the whole weekend free (or fancy the gym on Saturday morning).

Oh and one last thing, we’re getting a new kitchen installed in July.

We’ve been looking for a bit, and we signed for it yesterday from Lomond Kitchens … the tiles are still TBC.

A lot of things happening, is it any wonder my body doesn’t want to exercise as much as I’m planning it to? Roll on next week, see what happens.
