Last week I had some good training sessions and managed to keep on top of my work too.
I felt recovered from the Inverness Half marathon ok. I was a bit tired ok the Monday and Tuesday, but a nice wee lunchtime easy recovery run was good.
I did 4 runs (nearly 20 miles) and two strength sessions, and I had two rest days. All good and it’s nice to be getting back into the swing of things.
My sleep has been pretty pathetic, waking up at 2 some mornings and getting up as I can’t sleep, but that’ll get better in the next week or two, so no biggie. 🙂
Here’s what I did last week:
Mon 11: Rest & Travel
Tue 12: 5k recovery run lunchtime
Wed 13: Clean n Press Strength
Thu 14: 7.8M run (coaching)
Fri 15: Rest
Sat 16: Squat Strength & 3.6M (coaching)
Sun 17: 4.5M Run DMc
Here’s my plans for the next couple of weeks ahead of the Alloa half marathon:
Mon 18: Deadlift Strength
Tue 19: Run wi Twinnie / 5k lunchtime?
Wed 20: Clean n press Strength
Thu 21: Travel / run first thing?
Fri 22: Run
Sat 23: Bodyweight Strength
Sun 24: 6-8M Run?
Mon 25: Bodyweight Strength
Tue 26: 5M run
Wed 27: 5M / Bodyweight Strength
Thu 28: Travel & Rest
Fri 29: Run / Strength
Sat 30: Rest
Sun 31: Alloa Half marathon
Then in April I’m going to aim for 2-3 good strength sessions a week (mon wed fri ideally) and keep my running ticking over (3 runs a week ish).
I might enter an event but I’m not sure yet – any suggestions for a good event up to half marathon distance in the summer? A Scottish one probably.
