Did this run in the AM Tuesday, after doing some strength work at the gym the night before. I did the following:
- Sit ups 4x15
- Leg presses in inclined 'squat' machine. Individual leg, 10 reps, increasing weight on each rep. Ended up at weight '11' so ten sets.
- 10 minutes on the cross trainer machine, managed to get heart rate up to 143.
I am a little sore from the inclined squat machine, and so had a pretty hard run today. Still managed a pretty good pace.
I need to do some more racing at some stage though I am not sure when I will get the chance. I am sticking to my training schedule and there are no short distances that co-incide with races on the calendar.
I have 10x300m hills tomorrow morning, with a jogging recovery. That will be hard as I will use the same hill as I did last time. And in that one I tanked at the 8th rep with a walking recovery!! I will try to do the full reps !!
