This week I’m really looking forward to getting back to classes, doing some cross training, strength and conditioning- and stretching.
Last week was mostly filled with running, which I’ve been thoroughly enjoying for the past few weeks. I’ve also been eating well most of the time. All this running has made me so hungry!
Here’s how my week went:
Monday: I started off my week with a rest day, making it a record two test days in a row, to keep my hip niggle at bay. I definitely felt the better for it.
Tuesday: I had a lunchtime trail run, by myself as I couldn’t make it later in the week when Alison and Morag has arranged to run. I struggled- my legs were heavy and I didn’t make it all the way up the hill this time without walking. No matter, I enjoyed it anyway!
Wednesday: the weather was absolutely awful, but I went along to JogScotland ready to run. They were short of leaders, so Alison, Gordon and I headed off ourselves, doing a 10 min warm up, lamp post sprints and then a 10 min cool down. We were soaked, but it was amazing!
Thursday: I only had a short window of time to run on Thursday, so I managed to get a quick run done around the harbour.
Friday: it was time for a long, slow run, and as I had a day off that was my plan. But another storm was making its way through, and the wind was ferocious! I was also pelted by hail stones, so it was not the most enjoyable 8 miler I’d ever run.
We’ve had an off-track weekend, I was away in Glasgow on Saturday and when I got home I met TheWelshWookie in the pub, celebrating the Six Nations wins. We may have also gone out for dinner 🤷🏼♀️
Here’s your motivation for this coming week:
Make every mile count!
