Wk32 into Wk33

Last week was 3 runs, 2 rest days and two strength days – ideal. Yahoo.

Mon: Rest
Tue: 5.7M easy + Massage
Wed: 5.8M coaching
Thu: 6.6M easy + Physio
Fri: Strength – HIIT 25 mins plus
Sat: Rest
Sun: Strength – HIIT 25 mins + Super 4s Squat workout

I worked pretty hard in today’s strength session, and I can feel it in my back and hamstrings already, but hopefully I’ll be ok for a run tomorrow. 9 miles, first thing.

Next week will be as follows:

Mon: 9M long / build
Tue: AM HIIT 25 + Runner strength + PM Coaching run
Wed: Coaching hill run
Thu: HIIT 25 + Super 4s Deadlift strength (+ travel)
Fri: Rest or KB strength (away)
Sat: 6-10M run
Sun: Rest + travel

I have a few days off at the end of the week and I’m away to visit sone friends. I’ll get a strength session in before I go away, and a run done whilst I’m away.

I’ve decided the Garagym needs a bit of character, and I bought Foxy a while back for it. I’m going to call the gym, Foxy’s Garagym from now on, and maybe make up some wee graphics for it. Make it a place I really want to go – I’ll be accountable to Foxy – lol … to get foxy – I’ll need to work at it.

I’m aiming to do strength twice a week as well as my running (3 times), and it worked this week. My 100 mile challenge is still ahead of target for august, and I’m working towards the Kilmalcolm half on the 10th of Sept and the great Scottish half marathon on the 1st October. 💯 mile 🎯

I spent a wee bit of time in the garden today, I got and planted a ‘spotted laurel’ evergreen shrub, and I think I’ll get more for a pretty empty shaded bit of the front garden. They grow to about 3m though, so we’d better keep on top of it. Apparently it’s quite a hardy plant (good, in case I kill it!!)

Work is gearing up just now, I have three weeks to get ready for a new lot of apprentices starting… a lot to be done. I’ll hopefully be able to balance it with training nearly every day – early nights for me, and early mornings, fingers crossed.

Last night we went out to the middle of no where to see the meteor shower – out later that we normally are, we saw about 20 shooting stars in about an hour. Truly spectacular. I made just two wishes, and hopefully they’ll come true soon.

Tonight I’m going to make some banana bread, chill out and get ready for a hopefully productive three day work week next week – then visiting some good friends. 🙂 What are you up to next week?
