It is Christmas week. I have a training plan. Let’s see how it goes.
Monday – 8km easy
I ended up running with a friend and we did 6.5km. It was icy in places. And very cold.
Tuesday – Tempo / core strength
This was a good day. It was a Group Run and I deliberately ran with faster runners.. great 6k. followed by cxworx core at the gym.
Wednesday – Circuit
This was a half assed effort.
Thursday – 8k easy
didn’t happen. This is Christmas week, for heavens sakes. I work hard and I am tired. 3k done but I had a fantastic bonus core workout at the gym.
Friday – 11k easy
Did I mention that I am tired. Work is really taking a toll on my body. I managed 7k.
Saturday – Vo2Max
Are you kidding me? It’s Christmas Eve, I have been up since 3 am and I worked my ass off so all the people in Riverview can have fresh breads and rolls for Christmas. I AM TIRED! but I did manage 3k, or was it 2k? I can’t remember.
Sunday – 10k
Merry Christmas. 10k would have been good but I settled for a windy 6k. The wind was fierce so it was the equivalent of 10k.
Summary: It is Christmas week and I had good intentions but I had forgotten how chaotic things get at work. I was feeling pretty beat up by Thursday and I made the decision to forgo the training plan and just run by feel for a few days. I need a break, mentally and physically and plan to get back at it next week.
Cheers! y’all !
I will leave you with a picture of some of the carbs that I am being forced to eat this week.
