Wk7 into Wk8

Last week I did less running, mainly due to the weather…storm Ciara and storm Dennis… but I got stuck into the gym a bit more and had a good few rest days with plenty rest and sleep… a bit of balance.

Here’s what I did:

Wk7 – 10 Feb
Mon: Spin & Deadlift Strength
Tue: Rest
Wed: Spin & Clean n Press Strength
Thu: 15 min bike tabatas / express strength / 5k lunchtime run Fri: 6M
Sat: Rest
Sun: Rest

Just 9 miles running in the week and about 28 miles at the half way mark for February.

My running should hopefully pick up from this week as long as I put my big girl pants on and run in some of the horrible conditions. It’s never usually all that bad once you’re out.

Although I am glad I missed my 12 mile long run when storm Dennis was here. I didn’t fancy battling with him for two hours all that much. A bit of retail therapy and eating out did the trick instead.

This coming week, here’s the plan – mixing up run day then strength day and so on… and I’m visiting a friend at the weekend, so whatever day I don’t visit them, I’ll do my long run.

Wk8 – 17 Feb
Mon: 5k, Spin & Squat Strength
Tue: 8M
Wed: Spin & Deadlift Strength / 5k Lunchtime
Thu: 6M
Fri: Spin & 5×5 PB
Sat: Rest (or long run)
Sun: 12M (or rest)

The weather doesn’t look nice both days, but I’ll aim to get up early, wrap up warm and get out and get it done.

This morning I woke at around 5am… not quite ready to get up to train, but by 6am I was wide awake ahead of our run. Maybe that’s what two good rest days does – a bit of recovery.

Last night I made chilli for my lunches again, I’ll heat it up in the microwave and it’s a good nutritious and filling lunch. Peppers, carrots, onions, lean mince, kidney beans, black beans, tomatoes and spices.

That’ll do nicely.
