This last week I did a lot of running compared to usual, 5 runs, just over 30 miles and I managed to squeeze one Strength session in, on the Sunday. A chart session in the bike, then a timed tabata workout – 8 exercises 4 times each. Done.
I enjoyed my runs with others, the 8 miler on my own and a 10 miler coaching as part of Fiona and Camilla’s 18 mile training run. They’re training for Berlin marathon which is in about 5 weeks time and their training is going well.
I had a good initial coaching session with a client on Sunday too… I’m going to work with her to get her back to being fit, and act as accountability for her going forward. I like helping people and it looks like I’ll be able to help her going forward.
Here’s what I did last week training wise:
Mon: 3.5M wi FG
Wed: 8M easy
Thu: 45 min stairs wi FG
Fri: 5.3M wi DMc
Sat: 10M coaching wi Camilla & Fiona
Sun: Rest / Bike & Strength
It was a good week exercise wise anyway and my sleep was pretty good too. I’ve been waking up stupidly early recently, around 4 or 5am, which was good in Thursday morning as I went out very early for my 8 miler. Early nights and early rises are fine, as long as I get enough sleep.
I had a wacky dream on Sunday night, the ZMA likely causing them, but I quite like remembering the wacky dreams. I won’t go into it, but I was oddly in a virtual reality world on holiday and in special clothing. Lol.
Here’s what I’m planning this coming week:
Tue: 5.3M wi DMc
Wed: Bike & Strength
Thu: 5M effort session or run wi Fit Girl
Fri: Bike & Strength
Sat: Rest or short run
Sun: 14M coaching
Bank holding Monday and off work so it’ll be a rest day. Then 3 runs including a long run coaching with Lisa who is training for the Dublin marathon again.
My weight seems to be creeping up to the heaviest I’ve been in a while, a mix of added body fat and lean mass, but I’m probably eating too much so I’ll keep an eye on that and maybe stop being so greedy all the time.
