I am taking two weeks off after the Gold Coast marathon. Today is the Thursday of the second week.
On Monday I will start training again for the Melbourne Marathon on October 18 th.
But for now it is just rest and recovery. I am making recovery my number one priority.
Gym : 60 minutes:Upper body weight lifting including 500 crunches on the exercise ball.
Run: 6 Kms. Plan was to run fairly slowly but messed it up and ran two minutes faster than on Tuesday. Not good.
Run : 6kms. 30 seconds slower than yesterday but still too fast.
Resting Heart Rate up but I suppose I can lower that when I start running again.
WEIGHT : 67.4 Kgm. Heavier than I would have liked but again there is not too much to worry about. Once I start exercising I can drop it down.
Tamami was home for lunch for the first time this week today. As always I get a decent lunch but today I did not have to eat it alone.
Looking forward to running again. But I am trying to be smart for once and not rush it. Rest and Recovery is the name of the game.
