Training - Week 10

katywalkerby katywalkerJan 2nd 2013
Starting week commencing 31 Dec we head into the new year (2013)

Started off 2013 with a very cold 9km run...was supposed to be 15km, but the cold got the better of me as I clearly didnĀ't have enough layers on!! As with all years...January comes with a new found motivation as the ever active conscious tell us that we have to "get the new year off to a good start..."

In saying that I do feel a little out of sorts, with my normal schedule having been interupted by the inconsiderate demands of the festive period... I will give myself this week to settle back into it with a view to getting myself set up and ready to motor on next week. That's not to say i'll be sitting around on my arse doing nothing - far from it...

Midweek progress...

So going ok-ish this week so far - given my slightly haphazard training schedule this week. Lots of stretching last night (Wednesday) as i'm really stiff and sore at the moment - I think my body is adjusting to the colder weather as my joints seem to be creaking..and my gluts feel super tight?! Despite being uber tired this morning (Thurs), I did my 7.5km run to work with off/on efforts. Legs felt heavy and for some reason I feel really unfit??? I'm not sure why?? Am I fatigued?

Looking forward to my swim tomorrow - hopefully will freshen me up.

Will see how I get on...might have to ditch the Cross Country on Sunday if I can't get muscles and joints in a bit more of a relaxed state!

Cliveden XC

Tough course - really tough! ...but happy with my time, just under the hour (00:59:15) Finished 302nd out of 464... its all good - thats the benchmark set for next year.
