That Was The Week That Was

I'm never sure if these 'quirky' post titles work. I usually can't think of anything simple and precise so I write some sort of vague association in the hope that its 'interesting'. Its a fine line between being 'quirky' and just being a cock though. I know that. For the record 'That was the week that was' was a satirical 60s TV programme (that I've never seen anything other than a clip from) but it helped launch the careers of the likes of the Two Ronnies and the Monty Python team. It had absolutely nothing to do with running, diet or indeed anything within the weekly review that now follows...

Monday - Rest day but the first Pilates reformer class. Went well but caused a bit of doms 48hrs on.

Tuesday - 4.5 miles at base pace along with 2 drills (bounding and high knees).

Wednesday - 4.85 miles including 4 x 30s of steep hill sprints.

Thursday - Full of cold so postponed the planned resistance training but did 30 minutes on x-trainer as well as attempting 20 minutes swimming. Felt wasted.

Friday - Still full of cold so did Saturday's 4.5 mile base pace run instead of Friday's intervals and flexibility training. Went OK all things considered.

Saturday - Planned to do the intervals on the treadmill as well as doing the flexibility and resistance exercises at the gym - thwarted by Esporta. Found solace in chocolate.

Sunday - Did the flexibility exercises from the day before then did 8.5 miles at base pace with 6 x 30s at mile pace sprinkled within. That meant I was only 2.0 miles short for the week and it meant I did the intervals element. Still meant I'd missed both resistance sessions. Also walked about 4 miles with the family in the afternoon.

Diet - Mixed. I knew Monday & Tuesday would be difficult due to birthday but Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were excellent as was most of Saturday. Unfortunately I turned to chocolate after the gym debacle (a lot of chocolate) and whilst Sunday was pretty lean during the day the evening included such glories as pizza, garlic bread, Kettlechips, treacle sponge pudding with double cream and matchmakers. That's OK though.

The week ahead...

...follows a similar theme exercise wise but will get up to about 30 miles overall with each run being half a mile or so further, the intervals/hills longer, the LSR up to 10 miles and the cross training and resistance training each 33% longer. Its a cut back week the week after though.

Diet wise I just want a consistent week. Next Sunday is Charlotte's birthday and so a trip to an Indian restaurant but I'll just need to factor that in.

All things considered only 2 miles off your target is not bad at all! And I like the post titles! I always have trouble thinking of them too. Or I think of one randomly in the day that makes me laugh, then I forget it when I am actually writing the post!
