Wk10 into Wk11

Last week I got 3 runs and 2 strength sessions done, including the race on Sunday. I had some travel and rest days, and today I took another rest day and travelled back.

My body isn’t too sore / no real doms after the half marathon yesterday… I have tight shoulders and a bit of a sore neck (probably from tensing in the cold / rain), but the main effect I’m feeling is tiredness. It’s like a hangover, but not as bad. And it is self inflicted, so I’ll shut up about it now.

Mon: Rest
Tue: Squat Strength & 5k lunchtime
Wed: Deadlift Strength
Thu: Rest & Travel
Fri: 3.6M easy run
Sat: Rest
Sun: 13.1M Inverness half marathon race

I also spent a good couple of days with colleagues and friends in Inverness.. a good week, but I’m looking forward to a holiday.

Here’s my plans for this week coming if I feel rested enough.

Mon 11: Rest & Travel
Tue 12: Clean n Press Strength (or rest / lie in) & 5k
Wed 13: 4-5M run
Thu 14: 5-6 Run
Fri 15: Squat Strength
Sat 16: 9-10M easy
Sun 17: Deadlift Strength

I’ll see if I have time to do some Bike HIIT after my strength sessions too. I might take some extra rest, but I’ll see how it goes. It’s all a balance and I’ve learned to listen to my body to make sure I get the recovery I need.

I have some training plans to do this week, so I’ll get on with them hopefully on Tuesday night.
