Wk36, 37 & 38

With just over two weeks to go to the Loch Ness Marathon, and after a week or so of not a lot of exercise, I got back into it this week.

When we were away, we did an 11 mile run, a 6 mile run and a 20 mile run (across 11 days). Oh and one full on strength workout. Plenty of rest. It possibly wasn’t the best time in our marathon training to take a holiday, but I’m sure it won’t do us any harm.

This last week, I picked it back up, here’s what I did / am doing:

Mon: 5.5M walk (and shopping)
Tue: 7M run
Wed: Kettlebell 80:20 strength
Thu: 10M run
Fri: Rest (almost 10k steps!)
Sat: 11.3M run (avg HR 133)
Sun: 19.2M run (avg HR 156)

Today’s long run went well, a good strong run by Fit Girl, and I’m feeling like I worked after it which is good. I’ve done a total of 47 miles this week, but I still feel good. Avg of 16,000 steps a day (I tripled my goal today, with the 19 miler). 🙂

Wednesday’s Kettlebell workout was a good bit of cross training and I wasn’t sore from it, which was good. 30 mins of intense work with not too much weight.

Friday was a good rest day, a couple of miles walking, work and flying my kite. A good balance with the running I’ve been doing.

Looks like we’re ready for the Loch Ness marathon in 2 weeks time. Here’s the plan for the next few weeks:
