Last week went well training wise for me, a few rest days, 3 runs and a good HIIT workout that felt a bit easier than before.
Here’s what I did:
Last week my sleep could have been better… average 8 hours, with a crap sleep on Friday night. Insomnia is not good. There are two things that work for me – 1. Exercising / tiring myself out through the day, 2. Listening to an audiobook to get off to sleep.
💯 mile 🎯
34.1 + 20.6M = 54.7M
16/31 = 52%
My hundred mile running target is going well. I’m a few miles ahead of target and feel confident in doing 100 miles in July, and didn’t get much pain / DOMS after my HIIT workout on Friday, so I’m going to put more of a focus on it next week.
I’ve got a new workout using a gym ball – a Tabata workout, with just 4 rounds, 40 secs work, 10 secs recovery. I’ll do it after a 25 HIIT workout on Monday and on Friday too hopefully. With a HIIT and KB workout on Wednesday.
Here’s the plan for next week:
Mon: HIIT & Gymball Circuit
Tue: 4M Run
Wed: HIIT & KB
Fri: HIIT & Gymball Circuit
Sat: 13.1M build
Sun: 9M coaching
54.7 + 26.1 = 80.8
By the end of the week it’ll be the 23rd, or 74% of the way through the month, so I should still be ahead.
All of my workouts / runs will be in the morning, and I might do my half marathon on Thursday morning instead of Saturday, but I’ll see how I am. I’d do it before work, and it might be better for me to get a wee lie in instead.
