A bit more of a focus on strength training than tuning this week. The strength on Monday left me sore until about Saturday, not ideal, but I know it’ll get easier the more I do it. I’m aiming to strength train one main session a week and one short intense session.
Here’s what I did:
Mon: Squat Strength
Wed: 40 min interval run (4×4:1:30)
Thu: 7.4M / 1:12 long run
Sat: Kettlebell strength
I only did two runs last week, an interval session in Wednesday lunchtime and an easy / long run on Thursday. I was meant to run on Sunday, but I’ll swap my Monday test day for it. So I rested on Sunday, and it’ll be a Fartlek run on Monday morning.
Mon: Fartlek run (45 mins plus wu/ cd)
Tue: 50-55 min easy
Wed: Deadlift Strength
Thu: Intervals / 30 min KB strength
Sun: 100 minute / 11 mile Long run
I’m up to 80 squats, 2×45 second planks and 10 press ups in the 30 day strength challenge. It’ll be day 10 on Monday 11th.
My vo2 Max has dropped to 51, so I’m going my run training and intense / cardio strength training will help that (and my fitness) will increase.
