Managed to clear the cobwebs with a run along the beachfront in
Solid rest of the week covering the whole repertoire of my regular runs – a 12k run from work, along the river via Vauxhall then back home; a couple of runs (11k and 5k) at steady pace (13 kmh) in the gym and a long 20k weekend run along the canal from home to canary wharf up round via Hackney marshes and through Victoria park. All nice and easy and only a few minor aches and a slightly tight hammy. Will detail the post work run and the canal run in later blogs as they are a regular staple in my running training.
To finish off a successful first week did an hour with my trainer in the gym – working on a strength program for the legs – and a Bikram yoga session.
Next week up the mileage slightly and try and get a little bit off speed into a couple of sessions.
Week 1 total : 48 (Target 40km)
Week 2 plan : 50
