I am really happy with how my training is going - this is what I have done over the past week :
Friday : 7.28km run in 52:55 mins in the rain at times
Saturday : Rest day
Sunday : 14.95km cycle in 48:09 mins in cr*ppy weather
Monday : 6.06km run in 40:43 mins
Tuesday : 30 mins personal training
Wednesday : 5.82km in 40:16 mins (hurt my calf)
Thursday : 45 mins matrix at home by myself - 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 reps of push-ups (knees mostly), sumo squats, sit ups, 600 punches, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 reps of push-ups (all knees) sumo squats, sit ups, 600 punches
I think that I may be able to run most of the MDC next Sunday and if I can't, well I will just give it my best shot on the day. I am realising very quickly that some days I get out there and feel like I can run forever and others days I'm not that good - my breathing isn't right, my legs feel heavy, I just don't feel as comfortable - but I will continue to get out there and do it because I am loving feeling fit and healthy !
Have the best Friday ever - to those in Queensland, enjoy the long weekend. Al and I are off to Angourie Rainforest Resort this afternoon and I can't wait. Mind you, I have packed my running things, we have our tennis racquets (we have only played about 3 or 4 times since we arrived here over 12 years ago) and we have our bicycles so I hope the weather is good to us and allows us to be outside enjoying the great country air !
