Need To Work Even Harder

Monday:
Went to the track and was quite impressed with the amount I did. I did 4 x 200m at about 50%, 4 x 100m at 70% and 4 x 50m at 100%.

Tuesday:
Worked on my arms at the gym and I must be getting stronger, as the 2kg weights don’t seem very difficult anymore.

Thursday:
Courtney was ill on Wednesday so couldn’t go to the Pingles. However, Sheila sent the session through and I did it today. 800m warm-up, 4 x 30m strides and then 4 x 4 60m with a 20second rest after each one and a 4 minute rest after every 4. Again, I found it hard work, but feel I should have pushed myself even more.

Friday:
At the gym I did core exercises and they were made a bit more difficult. The plank was increased from 45secs to 50secs per one and I put my feet on the ball to do the crunches.

Saturday:
By this time I always feel a bit tired, but pleased to report I’ve not ached once this week. At the gym I worked on my legs and it felt like all of the weights had been increased to make it that little bit harder. A constructive week I think and only 4 weeks until my first competition.
