So i started the online training journal with good intensions but life got in the way. I have had a super stressful last few weeks and just haven’t had the composure to sit in front of a computer for longer than a few minutes. But to take my mind of things i have been exercising like a maniac. Lots of gym sessions, swimming, running, yoga, boxing and even a spin class! I’m not going to go through my last few weeks of training but I’ll manage my journal better from now on. Exercise wise the last few weeks have been great. I have a lot of free time to get the work done.
Friday night I managed to get in a 22km run. My first decent run in months. This will now be my Friday night long run. Hopefully in two weeks I will be comfortable extending this to 32km’s. I am supposed to be training for a marathon and training for a fire brigade physical. I’m finding the challenge of building strength for the fire brigade and endurance for the marathon a challenge. The hardest part is trying to plan how sore my legs will be after a gym session to allow me to run again.
Saturday was a 6k recovery run and some yoga/stretching.
