I had three great strength & abs training sessions last week : Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. Each time it’s 6 abs exercises, 3xs through, then 12 strength exercises, 3xs through, changing the abs exercises each session. I would like to perform my strength sessions at the end of the afternoon/early evening, just to re-stoak the metabolism, but I’ve been consistently doing them right after my runs as this seems to be the only way to be sure they get done.
Total Strength Training Time : 2hrs35mins
I punked out of my long run on Sunday as it was my birthday and M. Fish had various things planned and it was easier just to go with the flow and not try to fight against the day – I even got an 1.5hr nap out of the deal! Because I had 14mi/22.5km run that didn’t happen Sunday, my over-all distance is less…oh well.
Total Miles : 40.5 (65km)
I’m really missing speedwork, and know that I need to get some consistent weekly distances (meaning, maintaining at about 60mi/97km) and hold for at least 3 weeks to be sure I don’t injure myself. Then I can bring back the speed, because if I try to do both I know I’m setting myself up for an injury.
