This last week I took quite a few rest days, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I think I needed them, but I still managed to get 1 Strength session in on Monday and 3-4 runs – 28 miles. So that’s all good.
Here’s what I did:
Mon: Bike & Strength @630
Tue: 3.3M wi FG
Thu: 7M incl 3.3M solo
Sun: 17.7M incl 10.9M coaching
This was further up the Clyde, the sun rise bouncing off my work building. Thursday was when I ran in my own for what I realised was the first time in a while.
So my training has gone well, but my sleep could be better. I keep waking at 3, 4 or 5 and it being able to get back to sleep. For an average of 7 hours a night. Oooft. I must do better. Early night tonight and I should sleep well after running for 3 hours, I’ll need the recovery.
Next week, I have two days at work then I’m on leave, but here’s my plans…
Mon: 4.3M solo run
Tue: Bike & Strength (or do it on mon pm)
Wed: 4-5M Run wi Debbie
Thu: Rest / travel
After that I’ll be leaving it to just see what happens.
Progress is happening with the outcome of my training and fuelling… in the last two weeks, a drop of over 3lbs in weight, and a small drop in body fat %
26 August: 141.5lbs / 16.8% body fat
23.7lbs body fat / 117.8lbs other
112.3lbs lbm / 79.7%
9 Sep: 138.1lbs / 16.6% body fat
22.9lbs body fat / 115.2lbs other
110.3lbs lbm / 79.9%
Holidays are coming soon though, as are more ice cream likely. Wooohooo.
