There’s nothing really of note for me to write about for my blog so I thought I would do a round up of my “training” over the last week. Probably not at all interesting to anyone besides me, but one of the tips someone gave me is to record what I’m doing, so that I have something to look back on and see all my progress on those days when I have a really bad run. So here is a summary of my training log, bonus points if you recognise the heading references:
Que? Is nice day today! – Saturday
Busted out a few moves on the dancefloor after a Fawlty Towers Dinner with the family. Not sure this really counts as “training” in the traditional sense. Oh well.
Today I swear I’m not doing anything – Sunday
Spent the day in my pyjama’s alternating between episodes of Friends and Fawlty Towers. Got a second wind around 5pm and dragged dad out on a 5km run along the seafront. All that effort was balanced out by a few glasses of Pimm’s watching the World Cup Final. Win-win! (Well, not for Argentina…).
“I work out” – Monday
Unleashed the gym bunny in me and ran intervals on the treadmill (45 seconds fast, 15 seconds recovery, for 20mins) as well as core and leg strengthening.
Relax – Tuesday
Time to be all zen with a lunchtime yoga session at work – Namaste!
Best thing I never had – Wednesday
Hump day fail. Had every intention of getting to the Wednesday night club session, but the sucky commute home stopped that. It’s probably just as well, I heard the session was based on Kenyan Hills – yikes!
Now push it – Thursday
Gym time again! This time a higher incline for my intervals, more squats and planks to get that core strong.
Who run this motha? – Friday
ME! 5 mile run today – BOOM. This is my longest run since…January? So it’s quite a significant achievement (and not to mention, on the hottest day of the year).
It’s onwards and upwards from here folks.
