Despite a sore ankle and cutting one of my runs short during the week, and not getting a swim in, training seems to have gone reasonably well this week. Today’s 7 mile run felt good, and I was still feeling strong at the end which gives me confidence for the 9 mile Plym Valley Challenge in 4 weeks time.
I’ve been in contact with a local swimming coach and have filled out an enrolement form, so I’m hoping to hear back over the next few days and get some proper swimming lessons started ASAP.
This week’s trianing log
Running : 12.5 miles (3 sessions, 1 cut short due to a twisted ankle)
Cycling : 90 minutes (2 sessions)
Swimming : none
Plus and hour’s yoga class, several stretching/yoga sessions, and 3 weights/push-up sessions!
This coming week will up the running mileage, with 2 4 mile runs during the week and an 8 mile run on Sunday. I’m also playing squash again starting this week (after several weeks off due to holidays), and with a bit of luck I’ll be able to start swimming lessons this week, if not I’ll just head over to the pool and carry on working on my stroke based on the Total Immersion book.
