We did a gym session today (again) for cross training. We managed to get through all the set tasks our gym consultant had set out for us. Elena the consultant drew up a plan for us, with the fact that we are doing a lot of running in consideration.
So for the first time I was able to get through all of it. Last few efforts we ran out of time or energy or both. So I have improved in general fitness in the last few weeks as a result of the cross training/gym work.
I have a 40 minute run tomorrow morning. I might go fast just to see where I am speed wise.
