I have been really lax about posting my training logs, but I haven’t been feeling guilty or anything. I suppose I just needed a little break from the blog/log/posting. Anyway, I had a really good week this week so now is as good as time as any to get back to it, right?!
Monday 9th February
No running today but I had a one hour workout with my trainer. I did a circuit of weights and cardio. It was good, really kept the heart rate up and I managed more weights than usual.
Wednesday 11th February
I’ve been running my shorter distances faster than ever and really feeling confident about my abilities lately. I’ve also had to switch back to evening running for a bit and I’m still not sure how I feel about that!
Thursday 12th February
Keeping up with the shorter, faster runs but pushed it a little further tonight.
Saturday 14th February
Planned a long run in the morning, was going to go 5 miles but I felt so great I ended up running further! I kept to a slower pace deliberately; I wasn’t trying to beat any records. Perfect weather for running too, cool but not cold, breezy but not windy, bright but not sunny. I also had my usual one hour workout with my trainer, concentrating on arms and core with weights and pilates.
All in all I count this as a very successful week! I accomplished what I wanted to do, pushed myself to do more and ended each day smiling for it.
Next week will be somewhat different. I am going to the Netherlands for the weekend to visit a friend. I will try to get a run in but won’t feel guilty if I don’t!
