I appreciate I haven’t written this post out on time, I wasn’t really feeling like blogging it to be honest. To pick up where I last left off. I had a really good block of running whilst I was in Switzerland on holiday. I came back and got sick and spent most of it in bed. I was meant to do this for week four:
6 Miles Easy run
45-50 Min cross training
5 Miles Temp
5 Miles Easy run
12 Miles long slow distance
I knew realistically 12 miles was out of the question but wasn’t sure how well I would be to do the others. I had moved my cross training session to the Friday and was hoping I would be fit enough for that. As the week wore on I was feeling crappy but it was on the Thursday that I started to really feel better. My cross training session was moved to Wednesday but I still felt at the stage where I could make myself so much worse.
Parkrun on the Saturday was my first time I did exercise, I felt quite sluggish and slow but managed to get under 30 minutes. I had to do 400 squats and 60 minutes on the stair master as part of my bootcamp session and I did that spread over the Saturday and Sunday. I really felt back to normal and was pleased with how I performed (even though I could barley walk afterwards). I am still conscious that I am very far behind in my training but it was worth spending the extra time to recover.
