After a 12 Km race on Sunday, some hills in a 12 Km run with a friend on Monday and some ‘ speed’ work on the track last night it was time to take it easy today and have a mid week rest.
Started the day with 96 push ups and 300 stomach crunches.
Then off to the local Gym for 30 minutes of upper body work. Pushing weights in a public gym certainly brings it home to you just how weak and out of shape one is. Did 3 sets of 6 military presses amongst other stuff. Bit scared I could not get the bar back on the rack. But I struggled on.
Straight after that I drove to a series of trails about 45 minutes running from my home. As today is a rest day I went by car rather than run. You can do a complete circuit of theses trails meaning you can do laps….quite long laps. Plan is to use for some tempo runs.
