After a few weeks with mixed training since London, this week I felt like I was getting back to training properly. I actually managed to complete both club sessions, plus yoga and a longish run! Go me! Let’s hope this can continue.
Monday – Club session. 300m hard, with 100 recovery x 8, 5 minutes rests, and then repeat. The 300’s were supposed to be hard running, but to be honest my legs were still in a world of pain, from the strength session that I had completed on Sunday. I knew I wasn’t working as hard as I was supposed too, but I just felt that if I did, I was likely to get injured. I think my 300’s were around 8:30 pace, but I’m just STILL blaming the marathon in my legs!!
Tuesday – My legs were still very sore today, so I concentrated on some upper body work and some yoga!
Wednesday – A nice 4 mile run, chatting with club mates
Thursday – Club session – 400’s but with the added bonus of every alternate 400 being up hill! Yuck. I feel like it now takes me about 4 miles to warm up, so this session was hard, and just as we were finishing I felt my legs were ready to run!
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Longish run. I am wanting to get my long runs back up to 10 miles, so that even when I am not training for an event, I can complete 10 miles at the weekend. I completed around 8 miles, and I can honestly say my legs were feeling it towards to end. I just need to build up slowly again!
Sunday – Supporting at Grafman Middle Distance Triathlon. Let’s just say I was very glad that I was just spectating. It looked tough, and much respect to those that started it, let alone finished it! Many of my team mates competed and they were awesome. I have never been tempted by a triathlon, and you guessed it….. this didn’t tempt me either!
So that was my week. I am hoping that I will be adding a Pilates class to next week! How is everyone’s training going?
