Last week my training was a little disturbed by travelling to London with work Wednesday Thursday, but I also had 4 good rest days. I only ran twice, but the long run was good and I felt fine after it.
I seem to have fuelled and hydrated well for it. And maybe my strength training is helping too. Here’s what I did:
Wk9 – 24 Feb
Tue: 5×5 PB Strength
Wed: Rest & Travel
Thu: 5.1M in London / Hyde Park
Sat: 14.7M easy
Last week I just did the 1 strength session, and this week I’m going to do at least 2. It’s my last week in my four week cycle so I should be taking it easy if I need to. Fingers crossed I’ll keep feeling as strong as I have to do the following training this week.
Wk10 – 2 Mar
Mon: Spin & Deadlift Strength
Tue: 5.2M run
Wed: Spin & Clean n Press Strength
Thu: 7M run
Sat: Rest / Day 1
… they’re a less expensive trainer compared to the Nike vaporflys which aren’t available at the moment. And with a carbon plate in them like the vaporflys, I thought I’d give them a wee try and see how I get on with them. I’ll try them on a run on Friday I think (less my jeans from the pic above).
Next weekend (15th March) I have the Balloch to Clydebank half marathon… so I’ll see how I get on with that.
Then I’ll look at my next 4 week training plan / block from next week. Heavier training in the first 2 weeks, lighter in the last 2 weeks.
