Week that is.
Can you believe it’s almost mid November? The Coke advert is on TV and i spotted my first set of xmas lights on Tuesday (THE BLOODY 6TH NOVEMBER!!)
I have managed to get five training sessions in this week,four runs and one gym session.
Training has gone well,i’ve felt really strong and although I missed thursdays session (we went out for tea).I feel i could of done more if the plan required.
Saturday was XC time and despite having to work Sat morning I was raring to go,I love XC and regardless of the weather it’s never a chore,I feel like a kid again splashing in the mud!
The course was pretty dry this year compared to normal!
Planned vs actual
Mon– club session complete (10k easy)
Tues-Gym Complete (Squats ,deadlift and basic bodyweight mobility work).
Wed – 8 miles tempo complete (ish) decided to do some fartlecking (fnar) instead of a tempo run. 8.5 miles complete
Thurs – Time Pyramid Incomplete Mrs W suggested a curry for tea so I wagged this session.
Fri – Rest complete. (One session I never miss!).
Sat- Bolton XC Complete Ran Hard but controlled (I blew up big time on this course last year). Felt good and finished two minutes quicker than last year.
Sun – Long run Complete (ish) I had 13 miles planned but as most of the sunday club raced yesterday,legs were heavy so 10 miles and a maccies breakfast was the prescription.
Total mileage– 33
15 Weeks to go…..
